this is my first topic and im not even sure if it should be here.
I am a semi professional poker player and magician and i have an idea for a trick that i need help with from a math wizz.
The trick involves reaching a certain cell phone number using random numbers.
My question is, if i had the number 0272443255 would there be a way of adding and multiplying any random number to end up with 0272443255?
Any advice on how to do this or who the right person to ask would be very helpful to me
