It's just a bit of fun!:giggle:

For those it isn't working for press equals at the end of each task!

Do you have a 7 digit number?

Did you press 'equals' after each step?

no

Trust you to be awkward.

Almost - it is the first three digits and the last four digits - only one digit missing.

So presumably if I key in my first 3 digits, do the steps, add my last 5 digits twice and do the rest then I will get my full phone number? And I don't know why I'm bothering with this - I'm off to look at something else!! Thanks op.

It needs to be a 7 digit number. :oops:

What all the complicated maths bit does is the equivalent of multiplying the first 3 digits by 10000, and then adding the last four digits on.

So 1234567 becomes 123 x 10000 = 1230000 + 4567 = 1234567
