The Hamelly Formula

| | Comments (2)

This is sort of an inside joke, but the formula which many people I know attribute to one C. Hamelly (if John Derbyshire's memory serves) was actually devised by Aristotle.

Just on an arithmetic note: The classical formula (due to Aristotle IMS) for ages of man and wife is X vs. (X/2)+7. So the ideal partner for a 35-yr-old woman would be a 56-yr-old man.
