Don’t Know Where This Came From–One Reader Swears It Works!

Published September 21, 2017 by Nan Mykel

Sorry to be so lazy, but that’s what I am.  I don’t see how it could be meaningful.
I fear I’m participating in a hoax….

  1. Key in the first three digits of your phone number (not your area code)
  2. Multiply by 80.
  3. Add 1
  4. Multiply by 250
  5. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number
  6. add the last 4 digits of your phone number again.
  7. Subtract 250
  8. Divide by 2.
  9. Do you recognize the answer?

I think somebody somewhere is laughing out loud at my effort.  No, I guess not!

 

Tell me how it works!
