1. ## Math Trickery

Three men go to stay at a motel, and the man at the desk charges them \$30.00 for a room. They split the cost ten dollars each. Later the manager tells the desk man that he overcharged the men, that the actual cost should have been \$25.00. The manager gives the bellboy \$5.00 and tells him to give it to the men.
The bellboy, however, decides to cheat the men and pockets \$2.00, giving each of the men only one dollar.

Now each man has paid \$9.00 to stay in the room and 3 x \$9.00 = \$27.00. The bellboy has pocketed \$2.00. \$27.00 + \$2.00 = \$29.00 - so tell me, where is the missing dollar?

2. its not 27 dollars....

3. \$25 + \$3 = \$28....

4. Yea but it dont make sense cuz if each of them got 1 dollar back they would of only paid 9 dollars each and 9 + 9 +9 = 27 + 2 dollars = 29

5. If he gave back 5 dollars, 30-5=25/3=8.33 each person = the dude at the desk gave too much back...

6. each person pays 10\$ for a total of \$30.
the room actually costs \$25
manager gives the bell boy \$5 back
The bellboy gives each of the dudes \$1 back and keeps \$2 for himself.

the manager has \$25, the bellboy has \$2, and the three dudes have \$3.

7. Why were three grown men spending the night at a cheap shit motel?

8. because they are homosexuals, god. welcome to 2010 buddy.

9. Next up, how to have a hard time with basic subtraction.

10. All this was, was failed logic :/

11. if they where three, they pin-up, 2\$ save-up

btw:
everybuddy in a small comminity has to be shaved, if someone cant shave hiself,or they have no wifes, they go to the barbershop, who shave the barber?
