Chocolate Math

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 1756 ....If you haven't, add 1755.
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!!!!!)

You could change the "Chocolate" to anything that you want...like how many times you actually attend class in a week. ;) Anyway about it, it is still a cool use of math. Impress your friends. :) Thanks to Hershie for sending this to me.


How do people come up with these equations? Too much time, I guess!
