Beer mathematics

This is cool beer math! DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST! It takes less than a minute.

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 wastes of time things, it's fun.

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have a pint or a glass or two of wine. (Try for more than once.)

2. Multiply this number by 2 - just to be honest.

3 Add 5. (For Sunday.)

4. Multiply the result by 50. I'll wait while you get the calculator.

5. If your birthday has already occurred this year, add 1755. If not, add 1754.

6. Now subtract the four-digit year that you were born. You should have a three-digit number.

The first digit of this number was your starting number (i.e., how many times you want to have a pint each week).

The next two numbers are... your age!
