    Here is a math trick that is kind of cool.

    1. Grab a calculator. (You won't be able to do this one in your head.) Make sure you hit the equal (=) key after each step.

    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.

    Do you recognize the answer?

    Nope, neither did WhitePages reverse lookup, but cool trick anyway.
