    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?

    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

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

    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.

    Community purple. Comminity isn't the word your looking for.
