I tried this and it worked the first time .
The second time I lied and it didn't work but I thought it was cool .



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

More like simple algebra...

"Number of times you'd go out a week- multiply by two and add five..."

Two times a number plus five
(2n+5)

"Multiply by fifty."
(2n+5)(50) = 100n+250

"Add 1756 if you have not had a birthday this year or 1757 if you have and subtract your birthdate."
(2n+5)(50) + 1757 - birth year = age (w/ # times you eat out in 100's digit)
100n + 250 + 1757 - birth year = age (w/ # times you eat out in the 100's digit)
100n + 2007 - birth year = age (w/ # times you eat out in the 100's digit)

Doesn't work if you're over 100, by the way.:D

Still really cool though.

I bet I can tell her age by eating out.

x=times you want to eat out
BD= birthyear (assuming no BD yet this year)


50(2x+5)+1756-BD=100x+2006-BD basic formula

100x+250+1756-BD=100x+2006-BD distribute

100x+2006-BD=100x+2006-BD work through extra additon

100x=100x simplify

x=x wow guys, x=x


Like Cougar Man said, this is simple algebra (not even complex algebra). The populace should not be impressed by this crap.
