    It would have been:

    a) a seriously dull thread

    and

    b) a major shock to any mathematician

    if it weren't!

    51 + 60= 111

    Though someone a bit younger could "fail" this.

    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.

    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

    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.
