    Got this from ilovebacon.com.
    Need a job? First you have to call the right number, even before that, you have to figure out what it is... i dunno if I did it right (it has been 10 years since I have done algebra at this difficulty). I got 01,700.8000, which appears to be a foreign number. But I probably got it wrong. I suck at math beyond everyday stuff.

    I got 01.876.8000

    I am not a math person either, so I would not be surprised if that is wrong.

    01.876.8000

    01. (24 squared minus 24). (30 squared minus 10 squared) multiplied by 10.

    Which is 01. (900-24).(900-100) x 10

    You mixed up the x and y in the first parenthesis. It should be 30 squared minus 24. Right? Maybe I am reading it wrong.

    Easy enough.

    01 is a given.

    (30^2-24) 30^2 is 900. 900-24 equals 876

    (30^2-10^2)*10 As above, 30^2 is 900. 10^2 is 100. 800*10=8000

    01.876.8000
