When you ask: How old is Donald Trump?

Here is a small series of posts that cover the most asked ques­tions on Google. Most of these ques­tions won’t be ans­we­red here. Howe­ver, I might, for fun, give an ans­wer if I per­so­nal­ly know it. It’s most­ly to have fun with why people ask so many questions.

Wow, the fact that this ques­tion is num­ber 19 in the ran­king seems incre­dible to me. Is it pos­sible that the 45th Pre­sident of the Uni­ted States was so popu­lar that he over­sha­dows a large por­tion of the ques­tions asked on Google? That’s impres­sive. Howe­ver, if you want to know how old someone is, here’s a lit­tle trick.

If you know someone’s date of birth, you just have to sub­tract their year of birth from the cur­rent year. Easy, right? Howe­ver, we qui­ck­ly rea­lize that our men­tal math is quite weak. Take Donald, for example, his birth year is 1946. A trick for me is to find the dif­fe­rence bet­ween the year of birth and the year 2000. For Donald, that’s 54 years. To get there, you can add up. It takes 4 to get to 50, then 50 to get to 2000. Then I add the year we are in, which is 21, so that is 75. So in two steps, we add 20 to get 74, then we add 1, which leaves us with 75. So that’s a pret­ty simple and quick three-step cal­cu­la­tion. Why is that? Because we avoid blo­ckages. Do you know those moments when you’re trying to figure out how to do the math? That’s where you lose time.

Final­ly, to com­plete the whole thing, all we need to know is whe­ther or not the per­son has had their bir­th­day yet this year. In the case of Mr Trump, his bir­th­day is in June, so it’s safe to say he’s not yet 75.

There you go!
