Let's guess each other's birthday!

I am looking for interesting Math problems in the net and I found this!!!

How to guess if he/she is telling the truth about his/her birthdate! :)

Step1: Add 18 to your birth month. Step2: Multiply by 25. Step3: Subtract 333. Step4: Multiply by 8. Step5: Subtract 554. Step6: Divide by 2. Step7: Add your birth date. Step8: Multiply by 5. Step9: Add 692. Step10: Multiply by 20. Step11: Add only the last two digits of your birth year. Step 12: ????

You comment your results and I'll guess your birthday! From that, you can guess other people's. :D

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.
