# I Can Guess Your Age!

**PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS ONLY WORKED IN 2010, AND NO LONGER WORKS IN 2011**

Time for a bit of Friday magic. I am about to guess your age… just follow the simple instructions below

**1. First of all, choose a number, more than 1 but less than 10**

2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to make it a little harder)

3. Add 5

4. Now multiply it by 50 — I’ll wait while you get the calculator

5. Then 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, eg 1975**

So you should have a three digit number….

The first digit of this was your original number

and the second two numbers should be your age…. are they??

Witch-craft! ðŸ˜€

How clever !

Lol that’s good

Haha that’s ace!

I’m not sure if it really counts as guessing if one of the numbers just happens to be “the four digit year you were born”!

LOL … seems my magic is working, unless James has figured it out ðŸ™‚

I know it’s all to do with maths rather than magic and the fact you add your own birth date, but it’s Friday and my brain won’t let me work it out

LOL haha just cheered me up after a long day. I will wait till Monday to figure out the maths :o)

Think I have it. Take my birth year as 1984. If you deduct 1759 from that you will get my age as the last two numbers. The rest must just be for show to give you your original number as the first number.

I imagine the large number may need adjusting come 2011 though

@Kean so how did I manage to guess the origianl number you started with .. have you worked that out yet?

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! That’s kinda cool.

ha ha nice one, it works every time for me no matter what starting number you choose

That was really cool.

OMG!!! This is crazy!!! My grandma redid hers like 5 times! She kept changing her first number but it always would get her! I HAVE to try that on someone!!

wow thats good it really works

Wow it worked…It said I was 10.

Lawl, it was a little off. It said I was 12, I’m 13. Probably because it’s 2011 now. :/

wrong it says im 10 but im 11

Ha! It only works in 2010! In your face!!!

WOW, amazing i tell you! :O

It was 1 off!! I choose 7 as my original number and then there was 10 an i am 11!

i agree with alex ONLY works in 2010 theres a new trick for 2011 though.

Yeah, I agree with kayla and alex, it only works for 2010.

I an 9, (10 in 26 days!) and it said I was 8!

Ha! It doesn’t work in 2011! ðŸ˜› HA HA
