Zero Calories ...  


Chocolate Math ... care to indulge?

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 have chocolate.
    (try for 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 (being a bit stupid)
    I'll wait while you get the calculator................
>
>
>
>
>
    5.    If you have already had your birthday this year add
    1751....   If you haven't, add 1750 ..........
>
>
>
>
>
    6.    Now subtract the four digit year that you were
    born.  (if you remember)
>
>
>
>
>
>
>
>
>
>
>
>
>
    You should have a three digit number ..... or if you were
    bold a four 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.
    THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2001) IT WILL EVER WORK,
    SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.

    IMPRESSIVE ISN'T IT?

OMG It actually works

Carly, you must be like 1500 years old with the number of chocolates you eat

This is brilliant!  

Couldn't we modernize this for each passing year simply by changing the # to be added in step 5?

worked out exactly, how cool! But I have to say, I wonder what if it would have still worked out if I put how many times I REALLY want chocolate in a week, since you said less than 10 and all...  

With the word, I am mighty, with the pen I am free..
