Ok, I only proofed this in a brief way.  Found this a few weeks ago; made only minor adjustments. Up to you the reader to check up on me.  make any adjustments you need to do and run with it! If there is anything wrong or out of place here in the following I welcome any correction you’d like to post in the comments…I will approve it for functionality.  It’s Saturday! If you thought this was cool, repost it,…copy, whatever…:) No copyright issues these days…it’s all out there! Have a great Saturday. And may you be blessed in all you do for the Lord and others. -“…ofthestory.”


It’s 2015….do you know how old/young you are? Let chocolate math tell you your age! LOL

Start the Chocolate Test

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate. More than once but less than 10 times.

2. Multiply this number by 2.

3. Add 5.

4. Multiply it by 50 — I’ll wait while you get the calculator
(Click Start button, run, calc.)

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1764 ….
If you haven’t had a birthday, add 1763.

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

You should have a three digit number.

The first digit: this was your original number. This is the number of times you want to have chocolate each week).

The next two numbers are:

YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)

Important Footnote

The above test is designed specifically for the year = 2015. However once you understand the principle, then you can amend for 2016 and other years:
2014 use: 1764 and 1763
2015 use: 1765 and 1764
2016 use: 1766 and 1765

Example where you choose 2 Chocolates

1. Chocolates a day = 2

2. 2 x 2 = 4

3. 4 + 5 = 9

4. 9 x 50 = 450

5. 450 + 1764 = 2214

6. 2214 – yyyy where yyyy = Year you were born.

6a. 2214 – 1949 = 265 (No birthday this year yet)

7. 65 (in 265) = Two Chocolate a day choice, age 65

7a. 64 (in 264) = Age if born in 1949. (and no birthday yet in 2013!)
Why does it work?

Part a) The number of chocolates per day

Multiply by 2 and later multiply by 50 means multiplying by a total of 100. When the smoke clears:

1 x 100 = 100 (one choc)

2 x 100 = 200 so the first digit will tell the number of chocolates per day that you chose.

Part b) The clever part comes from the relationship between 1764 and 2014, this is exactly 250. Do you remember adding 5? Well look back and see that 5 x 50 = 250. Another way of looking at the figures is:
1764 + (5 x 50) = 2014
