Riddle 61  Where Did the One Dollar Go?
Three
men stayed at a hotel for the night. The hotel manager charges 30 Dollars
per room per night. The men rented one room; and each paid 10 dollars. The
bellhop led the men to their room. Later, the hotel manager discovered that
he had overcharged the men, so he asked the bellboy to return 5 Dollars to
them. On the way upstairs, the bellboy realized that 5 Dollars cannot be
evenly distributed among three men, so he decided to give them 3 Dollars,
one dollar to each man, and keep 2 Dollars for himself..
At this point, the men have paid nine dollars each, totaling 27 (since first
they paid 30 and got back 3 Dollars, it means they paid only 27 Dollars).
The bellboy has 2 Dollars, which adds up to 29. Where did the 30th Dollar
go?
