Bits & Pieces

Here is a math trick so unbelievable that it will stump you. Personally I would like to know who came up with this and why that person is not running the country.
1.GRAB 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 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?
