Cool Math Trick to Amaze Your Friends
This is pretty neat how it works out.
DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST
It takes less than a minute.......
Work this out as you read.
You may need a pencil and paper for the math.
1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have dinner out. (try for more than once but less than 10)
2. Multiply this number by 2
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 1753.... If you haven't, 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
(I .e., how many times you want to go out to dinner each week.)
The next two numbers are...
YOUR AGE!
THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2003) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.

Good trick man. Still trying to figure out how it works. May'be I need to ask some math major.

.
I've heard about this years ago, figured out how it works too... basically u can get it to work for the year 2004 too, just by making the numbers that are now 1753 and 1752 into 1754 and 1753. It takes some thinking, but its not impossible...

Good catch. I think you're right.

Here is how it works
Say u picked x at step 1; 1<=x<=9
Step 2& 3: 2x +5
Step4: 50(2x+5) = 100x +250
Step5: 100x + 250 + 1753 = 100x +2003
Step6: Say Year of birth is y, we have 100x +(2003y)
2003y is u'r age a 2digit number
Since x was multiplied by 100 it will be in the 1st place.

Here is a real geek math puzzle. No calculators reqd
There is a hotel "Galactica" in the universe with an infinite number of rooms labelled 1, 2, 3, 4, ....1000000, 1000001,.....
So pick any natural number, there is a room labelled with that, no two rooms have the same number, and each room has a number.
All the rooms are full.
Now Ahnold arrives and he wants a room.
How do u give him a room WITHOUT throwing anyone out of the hotel?
And no the soln is not housing someone in the loby etc. Only the above mentioned rooms can be used
WARNING: use caution when using on girlfriends

You just ask everyone to leave thier room and go into the next room number up.
Ahnold gets room 1. Everyone in room (n) goes into room (n+1). Problem solved.

did you read that in "duh" magazine?

Why?
I don't feel like doing the math. But is this whole thing screwed up if you're over 99?

Why?
Actually I did the math. If you are 100 it makes you 00 and just adds 1 to how many times a week you want to eat out.
