YOUR AGE BY EATING OUT

Don't tell me your age; you probably wouldn't tell the truth anyway - but the waiter may know.


YOUR AGE BY DINER & RESTAURANT MATHS

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 (actually, it IS a waste of time, but it's still fun).

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to eat out.
(more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2

3. Add 5

4. Multiply it by 50

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1757 otherwise add 1756.

6. Now subtract the four digit year in which you were born.

You should now have a three digit number.

The first digit of this was your original number. (i.e. how many times you said you want to eat out in a week.)

The next two numbers are...

YOUR AGE!

This is not one of those waste of time things, it's fun (actually, it IS a waste of time, but it's still fun).

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to eat out. = 3
(more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2x3=6

3. Add 5+6=11

4. Multiply it by 50x11=550

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1757 otherwise add 1756.+550 = 2306

6. Now subtract the four digit year in which you were born.2306-1960=346

You should now have a three digit number. yes 346

The first digit of this was your original number. (i.e. how many times you said you want to eat out in a week.) yes correct..3 times.LOL

The next two numbers are...

YOUR AGE! 46 wholly crude .. how do they do this stuff...LOL! That is exactly correct!! LOL







That was fun and way cool!! LOL

I was really chuffed when I got my 8Mb broadband. 1 of the 1st things I looked at was a news report. It was about broadband in South Korea. Most connections there are 100Mb. That really put me in my place  [:(]

Congrats on the high-speed Karen

This fun little calculation works as long as you're under 100
Old enough to have a grandson
Slow enough to study rocks
Thirsty enough to find a pub
