Three men check
into a hotel. The manager quotes the
room at $30. The three men pay $10
each. After the men go up to the room,
the manager realizes that he overcharged them, the room is only $25. He sends the bellboy up with $5 to refund
to the men. The bellboy decides he can
make some money. He pockets $2 and
gives the men back $3 ($1 each). The
men divide up the money $1 each. Now, each man paid $9. $9 times 3 = $27. The bellboy pocketed $2. $27 and $2 totals
$29. Where's the missing dollar?
