But everything will shatter when life puts into one equation a great problem, ambitions and a million of dollars. And this story won't be about mathematics.
I am trying to describe the life of one mathematician. He solved a great problem and was awarded a million dollars for it. But there were a lot of scandals, disappointments. He refused the prize and everything was bleak.
I am using figurative speech and it sounds fine in my language, but what about English? Of course, the equation mentioned is imaginary, it is just a way to say that his life changed when all those things got mixed up in his life. And since it is about mathematics, I used an equation as a figurative object.
