1. ## Magic trick!!! Try it

Grab a calculator - you won't be able to do this one in your head…]

1. Key in the first three digits of your 7-digit phone number (NOT the area code);

2. Multiply by 80;

4. Multiply by 250;

7. Subtract 250;

8. Divide number by 2.

What is the number?

Pretty cool!

Am i missing something? All i get is the sum of the last 4 digits in the last 2 displayed 7 digit number ?

3. i think it's just a calculator troll!!!!

4. here's another calculator "joke"
there were 142 Isrealies
and 154 Palistiniens
and 69 oil wells
and they had 5 wars and guess who won.
14215469 X 5=

turn the calculator upsidedown

5. I posted this same one on BC Riders.net.
One of the members, that turned out to be a math teacher, replied with:
Actually, it's a pretty simple little formula. Anyone who knows their basic algebra could do this problem....
I'll wait a bit and tomorrow, or so, I'll post the link to his explanation.

I think, Mr.Sushi, that you should adjust #s 5 and 6 into:
5. Add to this the last 4 digits of your phone number
6. Add to this the last 4 digits of your phone number again
That's why Warhawk didn't get the right answer.

11. This one you will be able to do in your head…

1. First three digits of your 7-digit phone number (NOT the area code);

2. Multiply by 10000;

4. Plus 1;

5. Plus 1 again;

6. Minus 2;

TA- DA!

12. Psychology is pretty high.... I knew I should have taken that in university - there must have been 30 chicks for every guy in there.
