    A riddle :o

    Three dudes drinked beer in a pub. The bill was 25kroon , every dude payed 10kroon ( so in total 30 ) barman had to pay 5kroon back , but decided that its bad to share 5kroon and gave back 3kroon ( 1kroon to every dude ) and left 2kroon to himself. so every dude payed 9kroon 3x9=27 and barman had 2kroon so 27+2=29 , where is the 1kroon??

    So easy.


    3x9 would be what the men paid the Bartender. Wich would include the "2kroon" that the bartender kept.


    So its.

    Bartender- 3x9=27
    Men- Have their refunded 3kroon.

    27+3=30.

    All kroon accounted for.

    well actually. the riddle itself is well "easy" w.e but look at it in this way. they had to pay 25 all payed 10 and got back 1 for each ( 3 ) and 2 to bartender. so by 10-1 = 9 (cuz they payed less when they got some back..). should be correct rite? now 3x9=27 and 27+2 = 29.. wheres the missing 1 in making it this way?
    -did i even make sense ffs :'/ -

    Poor ace.

    If 3 people give 10 each. The formula is 10x3= a

    Correct?

    Then if the bar tender Gives them 1 each back. You would have 3x9 (instead of 3x10.)
