    Your age by Cholocate Math

    Your Age by Chocolate Math


    It takes less than a minute....... Work this out as you read..

    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. (for Sunday)

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

    5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1755....

    If you haven't, add 1754 .....

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

    You should have a three digit number left.

    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!!!!!)

    THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2005) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.

    This is cool -- we've all seen similar things where you pick a number and after various math operations get the number again, but in this you never actually "tell it" or enter your age, so God knows how it's deriving the variable. Leoslocks gets the Central Lounge Science Prize, or at least the Forward To Wife and Friends Prize, of the day!

    this is interesting, why does it only work in 2005? there must be another year or different numbers you could plug in for other years.....

    I would think that other years would work. All I did was copy and past. I did leave out the Pass it On stuff, edited to get the sentences on one line but the math part, not me.

    10? 10?!?!?!? That's like a joke, right? It's chocolate!

    *I'll be okay once the endorphins kick in*

    LOL, 1048. It wouldn't have worked if it had let me pick the real number of times I want chocolate a week though.
    Things equal to other things are not necessarily the same.

    Actually, She really meant to say 9 time on Monday.

    Dark chocolate is better than sweetened condensed milk.

    What this does is multiply by 100 the number you choose and add your age, let's see how it does it.


    If x is the number of chocolates you'd want to eat in a week.

    Multiply x by 2
    2x
    add 5
    2x+5
    multiply by 50
    100x+250
    add 1755 or 1754 according
    100x+250+1755 = 100x + 2005 (that's why it will only work this year, if you want it to work next year add 1756 or 1755 accordingly).

    Substract your year of birth
    100x + 2005 - 1980 = 100x + 25

    25 is my age, and assuming I want 3 chocolates then
    300+25 = 325.

    It won't work for people over 100 years
