 Question 199542: What property is violated here? “THE MISSING DOLLAR” SaveAs: TheMissingDollar Three men went to stay at a motel, & the man at the desk charged them \$30.00 for their room. They split the cost, paying \$10.00 each. Later, the manager tells the desk man that he overcharged the men – that the actual cost should have been \$25.00. The manager gives the bellboy five one-dollar bills, and tells him to give it to the men. The bellboy figures – these guys didn’t give me a tip, & there’s no way I can evenly split five dollars three ways, so he stuck \$2.00 in his pocket, & returned \$3.00 to the men. Now, each man has paid \$9.00 to stay in the room; [3 men] [\$9.00 each] = \$27.00. The bellboy pocketed \$2.00; [\$27.00] + [\$2.00] = \$29.00. [\$29.00] – [\$30.00] = - \$1.00.
