1. ver hard riddle

alright someone posted a riddle (i didnt read it) but here is a tough one

its gonna sound really weird at first but just keep reading

3 guys go into a hotel(keep reading its not a joke)

only one room is left(still not a joke)

the room is 30 dollars so they each pay 10.
later the manager realizes it was only \$25 so he sends a butler to give the men the \$5 back. He doesnt know how to split \$5 betwenn three guys so he gives them each \$1 and keeps \$2.

therefore getting a dollar back instead of paying ten dollars each they actually payed \$9.
So 9*3=27 plus the two that the butler kept for himeslf =\$29.

2. It went to the government in the form of tax? Lol.

3. Tax?? How about Old is Old...

Posted same shit like a week ago i seen it...

4. Is that the actual answer?

5. The 3 men initially pay \$30

\$30 goes to the manger, the room is only \$25 so the manager gives the butler the \$5

The manager has now got \$25 and the butler \$5

The butler gives a \$1 each to the men = \$3

The manager has now got \$25, the butler \$2 and the men \$3

25 + 2 + 3 = \$30

It's just logic, and the trick lies in how the problem is worded.

The men are 30 out of pocket. The manager + butler total is \$30. The men are given \$3, that makes them \$27 out of pocket, and the manager + butler are \$27 dollars up.

maybe so, but i didn't have to find inspiration to see the childishly simple logic.

And seriously Tax guys *sigh*. yes i am bored with my uni work.

9. right it is logic. the person who did the math is right.

really u say tax and then say it is old. that is an awful answer. there still needs to be \$30

10. In the end, they did not end up paying \$9 each. They still paid the full \$10 each. They paid \$30, the manager sent with the Butler \$5, the Butler gives them each \$1 and keeps \$2 for himself, which equals \$30. The dollar isn't missing, the math at the end of the riddle only tricks you to believe that the dollar is missing.

11. They each paid \$10.
Which totalled to \$30.
The manager said OOPS it's \$25, so he gave the butler \$5 to return to the men.
\$25 on the side.
\$3 to the men
\$2 to the butler
Hotel Manager has = \$25
Butler has = \$2
Men have = \$3

No money is missing, the riddle tricks the reader that they paid \$9 when couting money paid AFTER a refund is stupid. When you say the men paid \$9 each you're subtracting 3 when they're supposed to have 3 and the manager has the rest of their money ( the suppose \$9 each )

I've heard this riddle in elementary, so it's pretty common.
