Let's do a little math

# Thread: Let's do a little math

1. ## Let's do a little math

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
5. Multiply by 250
8. Subtract 250
9. Divide number by 2

2. I guest no matter what your phone number is ...in the end all 7 digits of your phone number will appeared. PRETTY NEET

3. Pretty cool

4. Haha! Sweet

5. That's pretty neat... isn't totally apparent how the result ends up being what it is, so I took a minute to dissect it...

Initially, you have this equation:

((80a + 1) * 250) + b + b - 250) / 2

And as you reduce it... things get clearer...

(20000a + 250 + b + b - 250) / 2

(20000a + 250 -250 + 2b) / 2

(20000a + 2b) / 2

10000a + b

Which shows a lot more clearly why it always works.

6. dude, you have waaay too much time on your hands!

7. you need to go out and enjoy the sun, its time to ride, do the math:
sunny day add plus weather, and you
mulitply a few others and there bikes
and mulitply the numbers through the gears on two wheels or one if your good! and what do you have a nice day for a sunday ride with your friends

8. That wasn't exactly like advanced university math or anythin'. That's like elementary algebra that you learn in like early highschool or whatever... heh... only took a minute to do.

9. the math-geek

10. Lets ostracize the smart guy! Wow he can do math, he must be such a dork!

I hate that smart people are actually ridiculed. Like he said, this isnt even hard math, that was grade 8 algebra.

Whatever, I am taking this a little too seriously.

11. Math guy not so tough. Me strong. Me smrt. I mean, smart.
Hee hee hee.

12. You guys never heard him dissect the stats on winning the SUPER LOTTO 7 and 649.
Zzzzzzzzzzzz
