Your Age by Eating Out

This was sent to me by a friend. You must do this it works!!!!!

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!)

Freaky huh.

THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2008) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS

Are you kidding? Math this early in the morning?
They never let me teach math when I was in the classroom, for obvious reasons.

Love this little 'Math Riddle."

OK I was all excited that I would really like to eat out 6 times a week so someone else could cook the rest of the time! But really I don't think I have quite reached 89 just yet! Going back to redo and check!

Ok I did it again, this time I got my age right but it said I would prefer 7 nights a week eating out! LOL! I can live with that, really I can! Did I ever mention Im not great at Math?
