Sooo... what answer do you get? Be honest.

Take the last two digits of the year in which you were born - now add
The age you will be this year.


I got 111.

Remember, it's to add the last two digits of the year you were born to the age you will be this year. If you already had your birthday this year, you add the last two digits of your year to THAT number.

Born in 1958
I will be 53 this year in July

=111


Or last two digits, meaning 5 and 8 (born in) = 13 added to who old I will be in 2011 - which is 53 so it's 66.

HA - SO I"M YOUNGER THAN SIU!!!!!

I still don't understand

Haha, this went around Facebook a year or two ago. The problem is that I always get 112 because I never remember how I old am.

Math isn't magic. You can control anything if you cancel out the variables.

If I think I'm still 25 do I use that age or my real age? Either way I'm younger than Tude, and I didn't think that was possible.

It can only be 111 or 11 depending if you were born before or after 2000. Pre 2000 will be 111, post 2000 will be 11. Unless you were born pre 1900, then it will be 211, or pre 1800 where it will add to 311.

And I thought the answer to every question was 42. Go figure.



This is a very old math trick. Just simple math.
