Tell Me Your Shoe Size, and I Will Tell You Your Age!
Imagine that You and your friend, Multiplication are playing this game.
|Sl. No.|| Steps to follow ||Example|
|1||Ask Multiplication to write his shoe size to the |
nearest integer (let it be Z) on a page, without
letting you see it.
|Z = 10|
|2||Multiply it by 5.||10 × 5 = 50|
|3||Add 50 to the result.||50 + 50 = 100|
|4||Multiply now by 20.||100 × 20 = 2000|
|5||If your birthday has happened this year |
Add 1023; else
|2000 + 1022 |
|6||Subtract the year you were born.||3022 – 1981 = 1041|
|7||The answer is your shoe size and your age (shoe size is first).||10 and 41|
This is a mathematical game that you can play with your friend Multiplication several times. The final answer always ends up being a number, where the first part is your shoe size, and the second part is your age!
