**YEAR 2015 CHOCOLATE MATHEMATICS:**

This is pretty
neat how it works out. This is cool chocolate math!!!!!!!

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 chocolate. (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 1765.... If
you haven't, add 1764.

6.
Now subtract the four-digit year that you were born. You should
have a three-digit number. …

The first
digit of your answer was your original number (i.e., how many times you want to
have chocolate each week).

The next two
numbers are…

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

THIS IS THE
ONLY YEAR (2015) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.

Travcar's
notes about this magical number:

The numbers
1764 and 1765 would each have to be increased by 1 for each additional year past
2015. For example, use 1764 and 1765 for the year 2016.

For all of you
disbelievers, here's a proof.

Let the number
of times you have chocolate = x

Let the year
you were born = y

1.
x

2.
2x

3.
2x+5

4.
50(2x+5)

5.
50(2x+5) + 1765

6.
50(2x+5) + 1765 - y

With a little simple Algebra this equals

100x + 2015 - y

The 100x places the x in the first digit of your answer, for the
number of times you have chocolate.

2015 - y, your year of birth, gives you your age!
