I received this in an email and decided to share it with you because it is really cool.

AGE BY CHOCOLATE

Don’t tell me your age; you’d probably lie anyway!

This is pretty clever.

DON’T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!

DON’T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!

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

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 1762 ….

If you haven’t, add 1761..

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 (2012) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.

It got my age but the first number was wrong.

It worked out every time I tried it π¦

It got everything right with me… I love these sorts of things… and I will now go and analyse why it will only work this year… oh al right done that already… good one…

Why will it only work this year? Does it have something to do with 1762?

I thought that and then went and tried and it’s not… but as a maths lover I’ll work it out…

It worked!.. π

Am I really THAT old?? I feel younger π

Bad maths π¦

Amazing, and I did the calculations in my head, so I can’t be old. π

Cool. Are you also a chocoholic?

On occasion. If I don’t have any i the house, I don’t fret about about it, but if it’s there, hubby and I will eat it all. Best not to buy it very often. π

It actually worked. I’d like to know the maths and reasoning too…

it is fun, but I am terrible at maths so I find it interesting π

Thank you for visiting my blog.

I’m going to stop eating chocolate immediately, I can’t believe how old it’s made me!

Shocking and it has warped my waist!

It’s a fun game… but pass the chocolates! π

Nope, sorry – don’t share chocolates easily π
