Deb, When you get more please share them again. It's fun and nice to have something that stimulates the grey matter without costin a dime.

why it work?
for a little algebra:
Let the year you were born be represented by 1900+X
so to figure your age this year your would subtract:
2011-(1900+X) which would equal (111-x) when you simplify
let that equal your age this year represented by a and you solve the equation : 111-x=a for a+x and it will equal 111............at least if you were born before 2000.

Try the site called Archimedes Lab for strange word and number phenomena. And your calculation DOES work with my age and birthday. 1946 and I'll be 65 this year.

Not scary. It's programmed into Word, in case you need boilerplate. There's also one for just one page of boilerplate. Just substitute a much smaller number between the (). When an instructor is teaching Word, s/he produces the boilerplate to illustrate various kinds of formatting.
