Okay class today's test is a fun one...

...and you get to use your calculator during it. Aren't I a very nice teacher.

This is a math trick that one of my co-workers showed me.

  1. Grab a calculator (Unless your a freakin' genius, in which case, can I have some of your brains)
  2. Key in the first three digits of your phone number (not counting your area code)
  3. Multiply by 80
  4. Add 1.00
  5. Multiply by 250
  6. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number. (Example 1234.00) (I am adding the decimal point just in case your using a adding machine, because I was having a problem with it. It kept putting 12.34 instead of the desired 1234.00)
  7. Repeat step six
  8. Subtract 250.00
  9. Divide by 2

Do you recognize the answer???? Who takes the time to figure these things out...Cool!
