Chocolate Math for 2020
Guessing your age through chocolate
[This is pretty neat how it works out... 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 ...
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 1770 *; If you haven't, add 1769 *...
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 equal ...
YOUR AGE! (Oh YES IT IS!!!)
