Try this one....

Got this from Denielle's place....  

 

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? 
 

Freaky, huh?!  I love things like this!  Oh, and let me know if it doesn't work for you.... so far it has been correct 100%  :)

Ouch!  That was just a bit freaky... first time it didn't work and thought I must have added instead of multiplied, or something.  Tried again, and Poof!  Thanks for sharing!

Go figure, I grabbed my calculator and pressed 4 and a 5 popped up.  Pressed a 7 and it went to add.  So I hit it and guess what, a brown liquid seeps out of the cracks.  So now I have to wonder and search for a calculator.
