Get a pen and paper if you need, getting my brain to see if i can work out how it's done.lol

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!)





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