Chocolate Math

I got this from my Dad this morning...

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 1759 ..
If you haven't, add 1758.


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 (2009) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.

Mmmm, that chocolate cake looks so yummy. :)
This has been making it's rounds for years now. It's amazing how someone came up with the numbers for each year and how it works. Thankfully no one can see the results. Ha ha. ;)
Have a great week!
