It is a good premise so we will carry on with all the same rules.
Take my age multiply by my age and divide by six, and add the
Magic number and you will be there!
Good Luck!
Thank you.

Rumours that I tell stories about my age are true.

LOL, yes. As I stated before, Math makes no sense to me, Taxes and Codding in Fortran, Cobol, Basic etc have never been a challenge. Go figure.

A helping hand is always good. Sometimes realizing it is there is the issue.

Let's see - From the "Post your age if you dare" thread, we determined that Ian was born in the 1946-1951 time period, so he is at least 60 years old.

Therefore, if A >= 60, (A^2/6) gives a minimum number of 600.
I like that range - not too long, not real short, and not too rough on those with dial-up or slow net access.

Onward!
