    Neat Math Trick:
    Don't hit equal until the end...
    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
    What'd you get?

    That is a cool trick. I would just like to know who has the time to sit around and think these things up? lol. I guess I ain't much better if I have the time to sit around and actually calculate them, even when I know that the answer is going to be my number, lol! Thanks for the boredom breaker man!

    I tried to call it and the line's always busy.... what gives? Stupid chatty mathematicians always trying to outsmart me!!! Then they dont have the nerve to hang up the phone and let a fella like me ask them how they got my freaking number!

    Is this a joke or something?



    I dont get it.





    you people are cruel. :glare:





    ROTFL
    Sal :D

    Another neat math trick involving a tape measure a carpenter showed me.
    He has used it to verify the age of someone asking for a job or as a calculater to add or subtract.

    Take your tape measure, run it out and bend it backwards placing the tape foot even with the number 105 which represents the year 2005.
    Run down one side of the tape and look for the year you were born which in my case is 67. Flip your doubled over tape over and opposite of the 67 will be 38, my age.

    That's also a cool trick Mark. My kid thought I was nuts when I told him how to do this. Now he's on the phone calling his buddy and getting him to do it.

    Someone asked who it is that figures out these things.

    Answer: Most of those tricks, card tricks,,etc start out life in our prisons. Some of those guys are pretty smart and have nothing else to do with their minds.
