As Random as it Gets

Like numbers? This will blow you away!

Here is a math trick so unbelievable that it will stump you.


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?

That's a cute trick. I suspected what the result would be, but it was hard to believe it would be there.

Just what my brain needs... more confusion! Love stuff like that. My kids got a kick out of it too. NOW WHERE'S THE KNITTING?
