Delicious Chocolate math GAME !


 YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE MATH 

Don't tell me your age; you'd probably lie
anyway-but the Hershey Man will know! 
 




This is pretty neat math GAME!
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 1760 .. 
If you haven't, add 1759..
 









6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.
 
(Its difficult to do math while looking at chocolate, I know,
we are almost finished)

  
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  (ta da):

   
   
YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!) 
THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2010) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS. 



Now, time to reward yourself with your favorite chocolate treat!

  9. Good Morning Anne-Marie,
    II know you must be a strong woman and I am so sorry that you lost your mom – I know that you must miss her now. I lost mine at 50, but I am older then you. It’s hard – like there is no barrier between you and the world anymore. And they are our best friend.
    I didn’t know about your daughter either. I’m glad God is carrying you and that you know it too. I don’t have your email address.
    Love and in prayer,
    sandie
