# Subject: Math phenomenon--using your phone#

-- This will only take a few minutes to read and try--

I don't know if it works for international numbers but try it and see.

Using a calculator

1. key in the first three digits of your phone number

(NOT your area code)

2. multiply by 80

3. add 1

4. multiply by 250

5. add the last four digits of your phone number

6. add the last four digits of your # again

7. subtract 250

8. divide this last answer by 2

Do you recognize the resulting number?? 8)

This came from a puzzle book. ;D

VERY weird! That is the coolest!

And yes, from England, mine works with the first three digits of my non-code phone number.

Maybe I'm missing something. I don't recognize that number at all. :-/

did you divide by 2 at the end? I didn't the first two times I did it, but once I did, I had no problem recognizing the number. :P

# Subject: Re: Math phenomenon--using your phone#

Yes I divided by 2, but I didn't get the number. Do you add each number of the last four digits one at a time or do you add it like one number? ???

I am sorry the directions were no clearer when I read the book. I will try it myself and modify the directions. How about that? But my impression is you should add the four numbers as a full number 955+2333 or whatever your numbers would be.

Pretty cool!!! That formula works for every number? Wow.
