YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE MATH



This is pretty neat.

DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!
It takes less than a minute
Work this out as you read ...
Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out!
This is not one of those waste of time things, it's fun.



1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to
have
chocolate
(more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)










3. Add 5












4. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the calculator













5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1756 ....
If you haven't, add 1755.














6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.










You should have a three digit number










The first digit of this was your original number
(i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week).










The next two numbers are









YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)

I asked a math teacher why this didn't work and she replied.....

"This one worked in 2005 but needs to be updated now!

Let x represent the original number (a one-digit number between one and ten)
Multiply by 2 gets 2x
Adding 5 gets 2x + 5
Multiplying by 50 gets 100x + 250
Adding 1755 if you haven't had your birthday yet gets 100x + 2005
When you then subtract the year of your birth, you are essentially finding your age in 2005.
The 100x puts the original number in the 100s place."
