APOLOGIES IF IT'S BEEN SEEN BEFORE (I'll get that in first)

Try this :confused: :confused: :confused:

BEER / WINE MATHEMATICS

This is pretty neat how it works out.
This is cool beer/wine 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.


1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have a pint or a glass or two of wine. (try for more than once)

2. Multiply this number by 2 (Just to be honest)

3 Add 5. (for Sunday)

4. Multiply it by 50 I'll wait while you get the calculator................

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1755. If you haven't, add 1754

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 have a pint week).

The next two numbers are .......












YOUR AGE! ~ (Oh YES, it IS!!!!! ) :crackup: :crackup: :crackup: :crackup: :crackup: :confused:

Magic?! I think not!!!

Suppose we start with a number,

Double it: 2x

Add 5: 2x+5

Multiply it by 50: 100x + 250

Now, assume we have had our birthday...

Add 1755: 100x + 2005 (The year seem familiar yet?)

Now subtract the year of birth (YOB) 100x + (2005 - YOB)

2005 minus the year of birth WILL give your age, if you have had your birthday already.

So, we have got our number, x, times by 100: x00, plus our age, eg x30.

magic trickery indeed!

Now, where is that beer!!! :coolsm:

That's an excellent maths trick - cleverly worked out by some boring geeky genius :D

Pyro please don't tell me you think we think this was magic! ;)
