    You might be able to figure this out if you read carefully.

    Three men went to a motel. The motel manager said a room cost $30, so each man put up $10 and went to their room. A little while later the manager realized the room was only $25, so he sent the bellhop back to the three guys' room with $5. On the way to the room the bellhop couldn't figure out how to split the $5 between the 3 men, so he gave each one of them $1 and he kept the other $2.

    This meant that the 3 men paid $9 each for the room for a total of $27. Add the $2 that the bellhop kept = $29.
    Where did the other dollar go

    YOUR math is confusing.

    30-5=25
    25+3=28 not 27
    28+2 that the bellhop kept= 30
    "RIGHT"...

    But I like the Post, it made me think.
    And it's good to think every now and Then.
    Thanks Again For this Post, and as Always KEEP ON POSTING[/B
    .

    Regards

    30 - 5 =25
    25 + 3 =28
    28 + 2 =30

    I agree the math is little confusing but you could think about it from different perspective

    In here we considered that while everyone paid $10 and got $1 back so we have a conclusion that everyone paid $9 and part of the $2 that we gave it to the bellhop , so

    If everyone paid $9 then 9x3 = 27

    and if we add 2 then it will be 29 so there is a missing dollar

    just give it one more shot and I am sure you will figure it out

    they paid 50
    25 + 25

    then they received 2
    which means the they paid 48
    (( 47 the game cost ))
    (( 1 the one in the sales man pocket ))



    let me explain it in another way

    47 + 1 + 2 = 50
    47 = game cost
    1 = in the man pock
    2 = given back

    so 50

    تحيّاتي
