BEATS ME HOW THIS WORKS BUT, IT DOES!!! UNBELIEVABLE MATH PROBLEM
Here is a math 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 phone number (NOT the area code)
3. Multiply by 80
4. Add 1
5. Multiply by 250
6. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number
7. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number again.
8. Subtract 250
9. Divide number by 2
Do you recognize the answer? Hmmmmmmm.....

"989-9118" If you did the problem correctly then this would be your phone number.
I hope that you liked this problem, as I found it interesting myself.
Thank you for the response and have a great day!!

This is a very simple trick. You can work it out using variables like A, B, C. There's nothing great behind it. You feed in all the data and you get the answer. No big deal about it.
This trick is as good as doing this --
1.) enter the first three digits of your phone number.
2.) multiply by 10,000.
3.) add the last 4 digits of your number.
This number is nothing but your phone number ! :D
The trick posted is an advanced version which ultimately says the same.
Simple trick, isn't it ?
