Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 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
    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.
  2. Thats quite good!!!

    Do question the amount of spare time whoever came up with that had though.
  3. I got your mums phone number, was that ment to happen?
  4. yes give her a call.
  5. She's out......

    turning a trick....
  6. came up with your bank acc no and sort code, transferring funds now, cheers mate. :twisted:
  7. Almost got my home phone number.

    Is it some sort of formula that BT use when assigning you a number?
  8. no its not mate takein me 3 days to do tryin to get on countdown.

  9. Great number trick!!!!
  10. clever dudes them B.T. chaps
  11. anyone there????
  12. So that would be the first three numbers, multiplied by 1000, added to the second three numbers then.

    Wow, freaky!

  13. Load of shite. If its supposed to come up with your home number, it didn't work for me!
  14. Turn it into an algebraic equation and what you will find you are doing is to multiply the first 3 digits of your phone number by 1000 and then adding on the last 3 digits.

    Not surprisingly this gives you your phone number.

    answer = (250(8x+1) +2y -25-) / 2 where x = first 3 digits and y = last 3

    so answer = (250*8x +2y) / 2

    so answer = (250*4x + y) = 1000x + y

    If you dont get your phone number, youre just cr*p at Maths.
  15. Agreed.
