The next time someone requests your phone number, here’s a fun way to give it to him or her!
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. Key in the last 4 digits of your phone number, adding it in.
7. Key in the last 4 digits of your phone number again, adding it in.
8. Subtract 250
9. Divide number by 2
Do you recognize the answer? You should. The number that appears on the calculator should be your telephone number.
