Chocolate maths

Everyone try this, it only takes a minute.

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!

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)


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 1753....

If you haven't, add 1752..........


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! :eek::eek::eek:

2003 IS THE ONLY YEAR (2003) IT WILL EVER WORK. Impressive, huh? :cool::cool::cool:

if 'c' is the number times if chocolate you want to have....

and you was born on december 82

then it would be

(2c +5) 50 +1752-1982

= 100c + 250+1752 -1982
=100c +2002-1982
= c00 + your age.
=a three digit number with 'c' in the first digit and your age is the other 2...


very impressive indeee ...you always plays this meow :eek:
