How old are you? Do the Chocolate Math.

Work it out as you read.

 

Given the constraint that you have to chose more than 1 and less than 10, how many times a week would you like to have chocolate?

 

Multiply this number by 2.

 

Now add 5.

 

Multiply this number by 50. (You need to do the math correctly, so if you need a calculator find one.)

 

If you have already had a birthday this year add 1,755 to the number, if you haven't add 1,754.

 

Now subtract the four digit year that you were born from the number you have.

 

Now add one to the number for each year that it is past 2005.

 

You should have a three digit number.

 

The first digit is the number of times that you answered that you would like to have chocolate a week (If you are 100 or over, you'll need to subtract 1).


  The next two digits are YOUR AGE (If you are 100 or over you'll need to add 100).

 

Don't worry I won't tell anyone how old you are.
