82+29=111 interesting. is this the case with everyone?
It would have been:
a) a seriously dull thread
b) a major shock to any mathematician
if it weren't!
51 + 60= 111
Though someone a bit younger could "fail" this.
hot diggedy -- it works!
I think it only works if you were born before 2000. Which everyone here was. I think another exception is if today if your birthday or if your birthday already passed this year, but I'm not sure. It should work for most.
WoW that's amazing
It works but not showing my age
it'll work for every one on this site until 2018
112. Failed. Birthday passed.
86 + 26 = 112
73+37 = 110
Age at your NEXT birthday! Thirty-seven must be your present age.
As was pointed out, the formula only works if you have not yet passed your birthday in 2011. So let us reformulate the proposal slightly:
Let a = the number written as the last two numerals of the year in which you were born -- in other words, the year of your birth minus 1900. So the year of your birth is 1900 + a.
Let b = your age after your birthday in the year 2011
Now let us do some algebra:
Your age after your birthday this year is the difference between 2011 and the year of your birth. That is to say:
b = 2011 - (1900 + a)
A bit of arithmetic (and associativity) reduces this to
b = 111 - a
So a + b = a + (111 -a) = 111
^ That made my brain hurt.
Some people are not following the instructions. It's not your age NOW, it's your age on your NEXT BIRTHDAY--unless you have already passed your birthday in 2011.
