Thanks to my friend Tasha for forwarding me this puzzler.
1 - Grab a calculator
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 by 2
DO YOU RECOGNIZE THE ANSWER? (If not, make sure you are pressing "=" after each step and retry.)
I know this is probably a simple math problem. You put in all the numbers of your phone number so it's not like the calculator "guesses". It's just a matter of adding, subtracting, dividing and multiplying to get your phone number. Still, it's a fun trick.
