Calculate your age by Eish!! reads - Explained

Here's how yesterday's puzzle works, thanks to WikiHow.com for the method.
  • This really does work for anybody from 1 to 99 years old, although the Eish!! reads part is just for fun (an added distraction). Here's how the mathematics work.
  • Select a number between 1 and 10. Multiply by 2, add 5, multiply by 50. These steps are just a fancy way to push your random number out into the hundreds place. Here is what you'll get for all possible selections:
  1. 350
  2. 450
  3. 550
  4. 650
  5. 750
  6. 850
  7. 950
  8. 1050
  9. 1150
  10. 10 1250
  • Add 1757 or 1756, if your birthday hasn't happened yet this year. This yields the year of your last birthday (2006 or 2007) plus 100 times your chosen number:
  1. 2106
  2. 2206
  3. 2306
  4. 2406
  5. 2506
  6. 2606
  7. 2706
  8. 2806
  9. 2906
  10. 3006
  • Subtract the year of your birth and get your age plus 100 times your chosen number. Put another way:
(Year of your last birthday + (100 x your chosen number)) - Year of your birth = Your age + (100 x your chosen number)

Warnings
  • This will only work in 2007! For 2008, in Step 5, add 1758 if your birthday went by and 1757 if it didn't yet.
  • Your friends may think you are strange for playing this game as it requires inputting information from their date of birth into the equation ;-).
