Chocolate Calculator

[SIZE=“5”]Don’t tell me your age; you probably would tell a falsehood anyway,

but the Hershey Man will know! 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!
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 (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 – I’ll wait while you get the calculator

  5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1759 …
    If you haven’t, add 1758.

  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 (2009) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.

Holy shizzles, it worked…kinda. The first digit in the 3 digit number at the end was wrong. It was 4 and I picked 2. Got my age right, though.

pretty neat

I like things like that.

Me too! That’s why I’m sharing it here… :smiley:

Worked for me :thumbup

i thought i was 25…:confused

Hey, my birthday was 2 weeks ago :thumbdown

a thousand tokenz to the first person who tells me how it works lol

Hasn’t worked for me, I got 36 at the end of it :smiley:

HA! I knew it :stuck_out_tongue:

It has something to do with a trick with 9s.

It’s still really cool

Tried again and only got 30 :S

Apparently this only works IF you know math. Just sayin’… :smiley:

  1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate (more than once but fewer than 10)
    Choose x
  2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)
    2(x) = 2x
  3. Add 5
    2x + 5
  4. Multiply it by 50 – I’ll wait while you get the calculator
    50(2x + 5) = 100x + 250
  5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1759 …
    If you haven’t, add 1758.
    100x + 250 + 1758= 100x + 2008
  6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.
    100x + 2008 - 1951 = 100x

100 & 100 cancel each other out. (leaving just x)

x2008-1951
2008-1951 = 57

X(number you chose)57 (age)

2008 - birth year = age now if before birthday
2009 - birth year = age now if after birthday

The chocolate Calculator is simply a cleverly disguised mathematical formula.

Now that I’ve ruined it for you, givez me the tokenz!!!
