Ok, I’m a freak. I like to crunch numbers. In my spare time I play with numbers.
So this morning in my email I had this “Out to Dinner Math”. Thought I’d share….


This is pretty neat how it works out.


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.

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!!!!!)

Isn’t it funny how these things work?

Even funnier though, some person more geeky than me with way too much time on their hands actually figured this thing out! HEHEHE I guess life COULD be worse!!

So enjoy the math thingy! 🙂
