  • 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. I would also like to know exactly how much time they have to kill!

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

    Go ahead I'll wait..... Ok, here goes:

    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?

              That is pretty cool. I guess it is some mathematical equation that works out the same, no matter what three digit number you start with.

              First two times, I did it, I messed up. The last time, I did get my phone number.

              Someone is indeed a genius.

                        What I want to know is who the hell sits around and figures these things out?

                          It doesn't work for me because the calculator won't let me add 0, which is the first of the last 4 numbers of my phone number.

                            I'd be even more impressed if there was a math problem that would figure out my phone number without me actually having to enter any of the numbers that are in my phone number.
                            What an idiot....

                            Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.
