Announcements
1. I thought this was kinda interesting... I wonder how they came up with that... lol

This applies to last 7 digits of your number or if u have a 7 digits number like (9515151) If u have a 6 digits no even then the ans will be in 7 digits with an extra digit in the middle

1) Key in the first three digits of your phone number into a calculator. (do not use your area code number)
2) Multiply by 80
4) Multiply by 250
5) Plus last four digits of your phone number
6) Plus last four digits of your phone number again
7) Minus 250
8) Divide by 2

I said last 7 digits in ur case its 3465346
346*80=27680
27680+1=27681
27681*250=6920250
6920250+5346+5346-250=6930692
6930692/2=3465346
