**1. What number do you get when you multiply all of the numbers on a telephone keypad?**

**Answer: **0 (Since one of the numbers is 0, the product of all numbers will be 0).

**2. A number is increased by 1 and then multiplied by 2. The result is 10. What is the original number?**

**Answer: **Work backwards: divide 10 by 2 to get 5, then subtract 1. So, the original number is 4.

**3. Using only addition, how do you add eight 8s and get 1,000?**
