Try this--math quizz to get cell phone number

UNBELIEVABLE MATH PROBLEM

Here is a math trick so unbelievable that it will stump you.
Personally I would like to know who came up with this and why that person is not running the country.

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?
Weird huh?

The irony of life is that, by the time you're old enough to know your way around, you're not going anywhere.
