Phone Number!

1.Get 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 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

Do you recognize the answer?

Here's an example:

Let's say your phone number is 594-6284.

Multiply by 80
594 x 80 = 47,520

Add 1
47,250 + 1 = 47,251

Multiply by 250
47,251 x 250 = 11,880,250

Add the last 4 digits of your phone number
11,880,250 + 6284 = 11,886,534

Add the last 4 digits of your phone number again
11,886,534 + 6284 = 11,892,818

Subtract 250
11,892,568 - 250 = 11,892,568

Divide number by 2
11,892,568 / 2 = 5,946,284

That's the phone number we started with!

Have no idea as to what I'm supposed to be getting. The directions need to be clearer or tell us what we are supposed to be getting.
