chocolate math

Got this from my partner in crime and fellow chocolate lover – Liza, who else. Try it and let me know if you get it right!


Grab some hot choc and a cookie and let’s start!

Your Age by Chocolate Math

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…

…YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)

This is the only year (2010) it will ever work, so spread it around while it lasts!
