Chocolate Math: How Does This Chain Email Work?

How does this work?

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate (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 1759 ..
If you haven't, add 1758.





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 chocolate each week).










The next two numbers are

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

It's just the old add 4 add 10, subtract 4 subtract 10, subtract the year that you were born.
