Gymnastics Math! (fun)

This simple formula will calculate your EXACT age based on the number of days you attend gymnastics!! :eek:
(Parents -- this works for you too!)

Shocked? Scared? Ready to take the challenge? Then read on....
It takes less than a minute.
Work this out as you read. - As always, be honest and don't cheat!

1. First of all, think of the number of days that you attend gymnastics in a week.
(Coaches: this means more then once, but less then eight )
2. Multiply this number by 2
3. Add 5
4. Multiply it by 50 (use a calculator if you must)
5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1759. If you haven't, add 1758.
6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born. (ex. 1994)

- You should be left with a 3 digit number.
- The first digit is your original number (how many days you attend gymnastics in a week.)
- The last two digits =
YOUR AGE! (Oh yes it is!)

btw: 2009 is the only year that this works.

Feel free to post your answers in the space provided below. :D

It doesn't matter what number you pick, as long as it's within the range given... It's a neat little math trick, but versions of these games aren't exactly new. :)

I think I got one about how many days a week you should eat chocolate, and it was only supposed to work in 2006 or something like that.
