YOUR AGE BY EATING OUT
To Orwell Today,
Don't tell me your age; you probably would tell a falsehood anyway - but your waiter may know!
This is pretty neat.
DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!
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.
YOUR AGE BY DINER & RESTAURANT MATHs
1. First of all, pick the number of times a week
that you would like to go out to eat.
(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
5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1757 ....
If you haven't, add 1756.
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
(ie, how many times you want to go out to restaurants in a week.)
The next two numbers are:
YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)
THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2007) IT WILL EVER WORK,
SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS
Wow, what a great way to practice math! They should teach this in school.
All the best,
