    Not sure how this works but it's kind of spooky...............

    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.
    Grab a calculator. (you won't be able to do this one in your Head)

    1. Key in the first three digits of your phone number (NOT the Area code...)
    2. Multiply by 80
    3. Add 1
    4. Multiply by 250
    5. Add to this the last 4 di gits of your phone number
    6. Add to this the last 4 digits of your phone number again.

    7. Subtract 250
    8. Divide number by 2

    Do you recognize the answer ??

    I did it wrong the first time...lol!! But did the math right the second time around. Oh, and yes, I was using the calculator the first time too!!

    That was fun and I plan to pass it on to my daughter...they may enjoy the trick as well....plus it will get their minds working as well...lol!
