YOUR AGE BY EATING OUT

Don't tell me your age; you probably would tell a falsehood anyway-but

your waiter may know!

YOUR AGE BY DINER & RESTAURANT MATH

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.


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 1758...

If you haven't, add 1757.


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 go out to restaurants in a week.)



The next two numbers are


YOUR AGE ! ------ (Oh YES, it is!)


THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2008) IT WILL EVER WORK,

The logic is as follows

( 2n + 5 ) x 50 + 1757 - 1979 ( My birthday is 26th Dec 1979 )

= 100n + 28

What ever be the number it will be a my age + my number.

Similarly for 1758 as well.

I named it Math Magic
first of Fall
multi your last mobile number with 2 like
last digit of mobile number *2 = a
than add 5 like

a+5= b
after that mutiply by 50 like

b*50 = c
after that add your age like

c + your age=d
then add + 365 like

d+365=e
then minus 615 like
e - 615= f

f contain three digits

first digit shows your last digit mobile number and the last two digit is your age.

HOw Is ThAt!
