    Without using the calculator I could count that the answer is the original phone number.

    Trick does only work on seven digit phone numbers, though.

    x is the first part of phone number, y is the second part

    [(80x+1)250+2y-250]/2

    (80x+1)125-y-125

    =80*125x+125+y-125

    =10000x+y

    not bad, it didn't stump me nor do i think its unbelievable though. its just an algorithm that calculates your phone number.

    its like enter your first 3 digits of your number.

    multiply by 10000

    add last for digits of your number.

    except slightly more complex.

    Sorry to tell you that the resulting number is not my phone number.

    I calculated it twice.
