You can figure out someone’s age from his shoe size, lets apply it to you

- Take your shoe size
- Multiply it by 5
- Add 50
- Multiply by 20
- Add 1013
- Subtract the year you were born

The first digit is your shoe size while the last 2 digits are your age 🙂

Now, Share it with your friends to surprise them 🙂

Surprised, How does it work, Check out the explanation
Lets assume the shoe size you took is x, we will perform all operations on x now

From step 2 5x 5x + 50 100x + 1000 100x + 2013

**What is your age?** = Subtract your birth year from the current year, i.e 2013 – your birth year.

Thus after subtracting your birth year on step 6, what remains is 100x + your age.

Now shoe size is generally from 1 to 9 max and your age will be less than 99, so first digit becomes your shoe size remaining two digits becomes your age.

By now, you must have understood, that this will not work for the people with shoe size more than 9 or older than 99.
