    Lemme calculate again, we said IQ was mental age decided by you’re [biological?] age multiplied by 100.
    This way, 100(46/17)= 270
    This is incorrect.
    The mental age test is inaccurate anyway.
    Taking a look back at numbers at the lab:
    IQ1 = Avarage IQ
    IQ1 = 100 or 120 ; biologicalage1 = 10 ; mentalage1 = 12
    IQ/100 = mentalage/biologicalage
    The inaccuracy here = -20
    Mine would be:
    IQ2 = x or y ; biologicalage2 = 17 ; mentalage2 = 46
    IQ2 = 250
    Still unbelievable.
    Oh girl, you cannot simply put the result of that silly online teste into the IQ equation...

    "Your IQ is, basically, your mental age divided by your actual age, multiplied by 100", it says. That means:

    IQ = MA/AA * 100

    To calculate your mental age, you have to change the equation:

    MA = IQ/100 * AA

    In your case:

    MA = 124/100 * 17 = 21,08

    Edit: I just saw you already did the calucation on an earlier page I did not read.

    55 years old now (at 31)...

    really thought I'd be younger with my hatred of ironed clothing, love of speeding and complete lack of interest in other people's medical issues (and the fact that I would so laugh if someone farted at a funeral)

    but then again... going out is punishment, talking on the phone is hideous and I routinely ask the man to turn down the volume on the tv or music because I can't think if the sound vibrations keep tickling my ears

    Poor boy, my IQ is not 120.
    That was the IQ of a normal 10 yrs old human.
    I compared the results.
    Try reading them again, the results make no sense.

    Of course they make no sense. You made up the numbers.

    You made up the 12 and took the 46 from a test that has nothing to do with the IQ equation.

    If you say your person is 10 years old and of average intelligence, you cannot also decide his mentale age: you have to calculate it. The same goes for your personal numbers.

    We have a 10 years old kid, the IQ is 120.
    The IQ of a normal person is either 100 or 120.

    No, it says the IQ of a 10-year-old kid with the mental age of 12 would, by virtue of the mathematical equation, be 12/10*100 (= 120) or 120.
