YOUR AGE BY EATING OUT

(courtesy of email from Sanjiv)

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 1757 ....
If you haven't, add 1756.


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 (2007) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS

([(2x + 5)* 50] + 1757) - y = 100x + (2007 - y)

x = the number of times you want to eat out
y = the year you were born.

It will work next year if you replace 1757 and 1756 with 1758 and 1757
