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
