Here is a maths trick so unbelievable that it will stump you. Personally I would like to know who came up with this and why that person is not running the country. .. 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? > > Freaky............... well what do you all think.
