Actually this works with larger numbers too.

This is pretty neat how it works out
This is cool chocolate math!!!!!!!
DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!
It only takes 30 seconds....... 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. (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 (being a bit stupid) I'll wait while you get the
5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1750... If you
haven't, add 1749
6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born. (if you remember)
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.
