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)
OK, let's call this number 'a'
2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)
Now we have 2a
3. Add 5
Now we have 2a + 5
4. Multiply it by 50 — I’ll wait while you get the calculator
Now we have 50(2a + 5)
5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1759 ..
If you haven’t, add 1758.
Let's say we have had our birthday; now we have
50(2a + 5) + 1759
6.. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.
Let's call that year 'b'; now we have
50(2a + 5) + 1759 - b
You should have a three digit number
Yes, most likely. Let's expand out our equation:
50(2a + 5) + 1759 - b = 100a + 250 + 1759 - b
This equals 100a + 2009 - b
So, we're multiplying 'a' by 100, which moves it into the 'hundreds' column, i.e. the first digit in the three digit number, and then we're left with 2009 - b, which is the number of years between now (2009) and your birth year, i.e. your age.
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!!!!!)
