Chocolate Math

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 1755 ....
If you haven't, add 1754.

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!!!!!)
