**Chocolate and Math**

You know, I probably would have had better grades if they'd packaged it like that in school...

My Uncle Rick sent this to me, and it works!

**This is pretty neat.**

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

(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!!!!!)

THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2005) IT WILL! EVER WORK, SO

SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.
