Grab your calculator and try this

Have 60 seconds to kill? Try this little exercise, forwarded to NewsConference by my Chicago-area friend Bob.

1. Key in the first three digits of your phone number (NOT the 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 number by 2

Do you recognize the answer?
