    This is pretty neat how it works out. DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST . It takes less than a minute.......

    Work this out as you read. Don't cheat and read the bottom until you've worked through it!

    This is fun!

    1. First, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have dinner out. (try for more than once but less than 10)

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

    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 1753.... If you haven't, add 1752..........

    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 eat out each week.)


    The next two numbers are...























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

    This will work for any year (not just 2003), and any number of times to eat out each week.

    Right now, in 2003, you use the number 1753 to add to your "number". Next year, you would use 1754, etc....

    The joy of math.

    Thanks for the info. I got it in an e-mail (doesn't everyone?) and never really thought about the math involved.
    I've edited my original post to reflect the correction.

    Again, thanks.
