Your Birthday Shoe

You’ll need to use a calculator for this one – but it’s worth it!

  • Ask your friend to write down their shoe size – but not tell you.
  • They multiply that number by five
  • Next add 50.
  • Now multiply that number by 20
  • Add 1,015.
  • Finally, subtract the year they were born.

The number they get it THEIR SHOE SIZE plus THEIR AGE!

Try it yourself – it really works!

Here’s an example for you:

  • Ask your friend to write down their shoe size – but not tell you.
  • 6
  • They multiply that number by five
  • 30
  • Next add 50.
  • 80
  • Now multiply that number by 20
  • 1600
  • Add 1,016.
  • 2616
  • Finally, subtract the year they were born. (2000)
  • 616

The first number is his shoe size – 6 – and the second is his age – 16.

 

VERY IMPORTANT

This trick will ONLY WORK until the end of 2016. Next year, if you want to do it, you’ll need to add 1,017 instead of 1,016!
