    OUT TO DINNER MATHEMATICS
    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 of all, 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. (Just because)










    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

    (How many times you want to eat out each week.)










    The next two numbers are...


















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






    THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2003) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND

    WHILE IT LASTS. IMPRESSIVE, ISN'T IT?

    Cool, I think if you just change the numbers around a bit it would work for different years...
