Here is a maths trick that will stump you.
I should say, only use the last 6 digits of your phone number.


1. Grab a calculator. (You won't be able to do this one in your head)
2. Key in the first three digits of your home phone number (NOT the area code)
3 Multiply by 8
4. Add 1
5. Multiply by 250
6. Add the last 3 digits of your phone number
7. Add the last 3 digits of your phone number again.
8. Subtract 250
9. Divide number by 2

Do you recognize the answer?

Hmm. I must've done something wrong. What's the answer supposed to look like?

Ok! With your phone number only use the last 6 numbers don't use the *8* and try again.

Re: Oh, that's cool!!!!

Yes it is, and I have no idea how it works every time with all phone numbers.
