Find Age from Shoe Size
I saw the above image floating around in my facebook feed today and was quite amused at how people believe in such plain simple mathematical illusions. So as I was a bit free in office and found this problem to be pretty easy. I found the simple equation and the detailed explanation of the same and posted it as a comment on the post.
My Comment went like this:
Won’t work for the following cases:
1. Your shoe size is greater than 9
2. Your age is greater than 99
And yes it will only work in the year 2012 and not any other. For other years simply use the (birthYear- 1000) instead of 1012.
Also it is not just true for your shoe size but also for the number of nose, eyes, ears you have. Also it works for the current hour number if its less than 10. If its more than 10 then simply use the last 2 digits of the solution. Try it with your cloth sizes as well, just use the last 2 digits. Simple MATH =)
Also here is the full calculation:
Let shoe size be x
Then final number is
PS: X00 means put 2 zeroes at the end of X.
Now since your age is mostly going to be a 2 digit number,
I hope people are more interested in enjoying the math behind these posts than just being amazed by the pointless magic. m//
