Found it in a magazine...and as much as I've tried - I cannot solve it. CAn you?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1.First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to eat 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 1753, if not, add 1752.

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 (how many times you want to eat chocolate each week). The next two numbers are.. YOUR AGE!
