    Curiosidades Matemáticas (III)

    Deixo-vos um interessante desafio matemático. Vale a pena, não se trata de uma perda de tempo e é bastante divertido. Além, do mais não demora mais do que um minuto.

    Não vale fazer batota e ler já o final. Isso não.

    1. Em primeiro lugar fixe o número de vezes que gostaria de ir jantar fora durante uma semana. Mais do que uma vez e menos do que dez.

    2. Multiplique o número anterior por 2 (… é só para assegurar que dê um número par!)

    3. Some 5 ao resultado anterior.

    4. Multiplique por 50. Bem eu sei, aqui se precisar de uma caneta e de um papel tudo bem. Eu espero ….

    5. Agora se já fez anos este ano some 1757 … Se ainda não fez some apenas 1756.

    6. Agora ao resultado subtraia o seu ano de nascimento.

    Encontrou um número composto por três dígitos. Não foi? Pois claro.

    Então posso-lhe dizer que o primeiro algarismo é a sua resposta à primeira pergunta (o número de vezes que gostaria de jantar fora durante uma semana) e os outros dois algarismos representam … a sua idade. É verdade!!!
