Chocolate Math

This is one of those cool number problems that amazes you
with the answer. Don't scroll down and cheat - it's more fun
if you follow it in order. Have fun.

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

Scroll Down

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


3. Add 5. (for Sunday)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Multiply it by 50. (being a bit stupid)

l'll wait while you get the calculator................

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. lf you have already had your birthday this year, and the year is:
2002 - add 1752
2003 - add 1753
2004 - add 1754
...etc

lf you have not had your birthday yet this year, and the year is:
2002 - add 1751
2003 - add 1752
2004 - add 1753
...etc

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

(if you remember)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SEE BELOW

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You should now 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 second two digits are your age (and it shows - haha).

IMPRESSIVE ISN'T IT ?
