There is more to math than you might imagine, says K Sampath Kumar. Here is how you can amaze your friends with magic math skills.

Ladies Beware. Your well guarded secret will soon be out!!

Do not believe? Try it...

It will take about 15 seconds. So read and do it at the same time so that you will not lose the pleasure of finding out.

1) Take a look at your last digit of your cell phone number

2) Use this figure and multiply by 2

3) Then add 5

4) And then multiply by 50

5) And then add the number 1763

6) The last step; with this number, subtract your birth year.

Now you see a number.

The first digit is the last digit of your phone number, the next digits is your actual age!

Surprising?
