## Age Guessing

Below is a trick to guess age of any body just by asking them to do some simple arithmetic calculations for you. This can be used to amaze your friends.

Lets understand these trick with an example

Suppose age of your friend is 37 and you don’t know that. Step 1: Tell friend to multiply his age by 5 i.e., 37*5 = 185

Step 2: tell him/her to add 8 to the result i.e., 185+8 = 193

Step 3: tell him/her to multiply the result by 2 i.e., 193*2 = 386

Step 4: tell him/her to subtract 6 from the result i.e., 386-6 = 380

Step 5: tell him/her to multiply the result by 10 i.e., 380*10 = 3800

Step 6: tell him/her to subtract 100 from the result i.e., 3800-100 = 3700

Step 7: ask him/her to tell you the result i.e., 3700

Step 8 : now you divide the result by 100 i.e., 3700/100 = 37 which is your friend’s age.

lets take one more example if you think it is a bluff take 15

Step 1: Tell friend to multiply his age by 5 i.e., 15*5 = 75

Step 2: Tell him/her to add 8 to the result i.e., 75+8 = 83

Step 3: tell him/her to multiply the result by 2 i.e., 83*2 = 166

Step 4: tell him/her to subtract 6 from the result i.e., 166-6=160

Step 5: tell him/her to multiply the result by 10 i.e., 160*10 = 1600

Step 6: tell him/her to subtract 100 from the result i.e., 1600-100 = 1500

Step 7: ask him/her to tell you the result i.e., 1500

Step 8: now you divide the result by 100 i.e., 1500/100 = 15 which is your friend’s age.
