Me? Sure. But I’ll do it the quick way as I don’t believe in circumlocution.

1. Multiply your first number by 1000.

2. If you have already had your birthday this year add 2008. If you haven’t, add 2007.

3. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born in.

You should have a four-digit number. The first digit of this was your original number. The next three numbers are your age (with a leading 0 if you are under 100).

See the pattern yet? Come on, you must be able to twig it now.

Again this trick only works for the year 2008. Unfortunately it also only works if you are less than 1000 years old.
