My brother sent me this.

Subject: Fun with Math

DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST! It only takes 30 seconds. Work this out as you read. Don't read the bottom until you've worked it out!

*

1. First of all, pick the number of days a week that you would like >to eat out.

* 2. Multiply this number by 2.

* 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 1749. If you haven't, add 1748.

* 6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

* SEE BELOW

* You should now have a three digit number:

*

The first digit of this was your original number (i.e., how many >times you want to go out each week).

*

The second two digits are your age

*

This is the only year (1999) it will ever work, so spread the fun >around while it lasts...
