DUTCH OP (OP)User ID: 27393245 Malta 11/19/2012 02:29 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | Thanks, friends! I have to repeat this: I did not come-up with the formula! I haven't even trid it neither; and as for the last line in the thread-opener that is written in "Bold", I didn't write that—I just copied it from off the sheet I was given.DUTCH OP. |

Anonymous Coward User ID: 27803057 United States 11/19/2012 02:34 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | I came to the number 334. I am 34, but my shoe size is not 3. Fail. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27803057 did you subtract that last number? Anonymous Coward 14779720 Okay, I apologize because I did the math wrong. It does work. However, it's still deceptively worded. "Shoe size" is irrelevant. This works with whatever number you plug in. The formula is rigged so that the first two digits will always be the digits you started with. The last two are rigged as well. The first three steps (multiply by 5, add 50, multiply by 20), will always ensure that you have a number that ends in 00. So when you add 1012, the number will always end in 12. So when you subtract the year you were born, you always get your age for the last two digits. So if you were born in 1978... 2112-1978=134 3012-1978=1034 2012-1978=34 There's nothing esoteric or magical. It's just the only way it could work. |

Elitists...the lot of them! DUTCH OP 27393245 It's not just you. Most people on this site are dumb. You don't have to be a cocky, preppy, math expert to know that this is a parlour trick. What will step 5 be next year? 1013. If you used last year's step 5, 1011, then the formula would be wrong for this year. You too, can invent a formula to mystify folks that don't think quickly. |

I haven't tried it out myself yet, but thought I'd post it up on the GLP front page as soon as possible to see what you all think...Get your calculators out!FORMULA:-1) Take your shoe size. 2) Multiply it by 5. 3) Add 50. 4) Multiply that by 20. 5) Add 10 12. <<< This value is the current year!6) Subtract the year you were born. The first digit is your shoe size, while the last two digits is your age...."PROVE ME WRONG IF YOU CAN!"DUTCH OP 27393245 If you did that last year and used 11, you would get the same result, next year change that to 13, get the point? |

Anonymous Coward User ID: 40828188 United States 08/22/2013 10:08 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | When u come up with a wrong answer that means your shoe size is with a (0.5) or half. So u take away 5 from the middle number and add to ur shoe size as . 5 then u get ur shoe size and ur age. There is no way to get it wrong and when adding say 1012 the last 2 digits shld be the current year |
