YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE MATHEMATICS


Don't tell me your age; you'd probably lie anyway-but the Hershey Man will know!

YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE MATHEMATICS

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 1760 .
If you haven't, add 1759..

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

Brilliant if it wasn't for the fact it asks for your year of birth and whether you've had your birthday or not this year, not exactly tricky to work out age with those two facts.

Wow. Who would have thought that if you subtract the year you were born from 2010 you would get your age. Those crazy boffins at Nasa.

Indeed. Whilst I'm all for fun with maths, I'm still a little surprised at how amazed people are at this considering they are asked for their year of birth within the process and clearly then just take that number from 2010. Perhaps it's the first two entirely unnecessary steps (and therefore the entirely unnecessary link to chocolate) that are adding in the 'wow' factor.
