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 (being a bit stupid)

I'll wait while you get the calculator................


5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1751....

If you haven't, add 1750 .........


6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born. (if you
remember)



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.

this is nothing complicated - just elementary mathematics
n /*your number*/
2n
2n+5
100n+250
100n+2000
-19Xx
100n+age (two digits)

(2001-19xx is age when you already had birthday, so the 2001 is year of your last birthday , if you didn't have it yet the last one was in 2000)

An easier way to work it out:
The basic equation is:
((2n+5)50)+1751 (if you had your birthday)-19Xx (Year you where born in)

Now when we put some numbers in it:
n=3 we have had our birthday and where born in 1983

I will leave N out for the time being:
100n+250+1751-1983
Which is:
100n+18(your age)

So by 'n' being multipled by 100 it get basically is putting n infront of your age

In out case:
300+18

=318

I think those kinds of things are pretty neat, even though they are pretty simple.  Smile

Mine was 739. I did it all in my head, too. I always hear "if you want to be a pilot you have to be good at math". I think that's crap. I had years of algebra and a very short bit of caculus and you don't need to know any of that to fly. I'm good at manipulating numbers in my head....and that is great for figuring out descent profiles and....how much I make if I work a little overtime.

What IS good about math is it teaches you to think and solve problems in a logical way....and that is very important for pilots.
