Age By Chocolate

Postby Saphirone » Thu Dec 02, 2004 9:37 am

Silly sent this to me, And I couldn't help but share it with everyone else, :O) Enjoy!


Subject: FW: creepy..but cool



YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE 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!

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. (for Sunday)

4. Multiply it by 50, I'll wait while you get the calculator................

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1754....If you
haven't, add 1753



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 (2004) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND
WHILE IT LASTS.

Hehe I wish she would play - but the most she'll do is browse websites and email - anything other than that she just won't do. :( She's a trip though!

WHILE IT LASTS.


Sorry to tell you. But this is wrong. I happen to be a math dork and will explain why. First pick any number between 0 and 10 exclusive (meaning no 0 or 10)..... Lets call it X .. Then do 50(2X+5) and we get 100X+250 What this means is... Whatever number you will pick will have two zeros after it. The part about getting your age in there is just a trick in your mind. As seen in 100X+250 we added 250 to the problem. Well lets see, if your last birthday was in 2004 then minus 250 from that and you get 1754, sound familiar? Otherwise you use 1753 cause your last birthday was 2003. At this point we are looking at the problem as either 2004+100X or 2003+100x. Go ahead and subtract out the year you were born. For me it was Dec 5 1986. Seeing as it is Dec3 I am still 17, and 2003 - 1986 = 17. The final product is now 100X+17. Using a little math logic we can see that we will get Whatever number I picked as how much chocolate I want in the hundreds place. And the tens and ones place is taken up by my age.

And I digress. If I was to make this problem work for the year 2010. It would be 2010 - 250 = 1760 or 2009 - 250 = 1759. Lets once again assume my birthday still didnt pass. Lets pick 3 just for the sake of simplicity instead of using X. Following the order. 3x2=6, 6+5=11, 11x50=550, 550+1759= 2309, 2309-1986=323. Well, in exactly 6 years I will be 23, and the number I picked was 3. Hmm, 3 23.

I guess now that I look at it, using the numbers 1754 or 1754 regardless of the year would mean it would only work in 2004. But if you did the math and updated this thing you could make it work for any year you want.

Well, nothing more to say here. So off to play Guit or go out for the night, not sure which yet.

Guit.. I am ASTONISHED at Your Math Skills, and applaud them. however, now I need to go take some aspirins, because all that math made my head hurt, hehe.

Thankies for the insight though, it is appreciated, :)

I nominate Guit as guild mathmatician. His duties are to figure CNP on new items. (see CNP thread for formula)
