 Question 170108: Three men are attending a math conference together. To save money, they decide to share a room. Upon entering the hotel, the man behind the desk states that the room is \$30. Each man reaches into his pocket and pays the man behind the counter \$10. The men head up to their room. An hour later the manager realizes that the man behind the front desk chargered the men too much. The room is at a reduced rate for all ‘conference go-ers’. Instead of \$30, the room is actually \$25. The manager hands the bellboy five one-dollar bills and tells him to return the \$5 to the three men. Well, the bellboy was not an honest boy. He knew that the three men didn’t know that they were receiving money back, so he only returned \$3 to the men and pocketed the other \$2. This means that instead of each paying \$10, each of the three men paid \$9. If you multiply \$9 by three, you will get \$27. If you add the \$2 in the bellboy’s pocket, you get \$29. The men originally paid \$30…where is the other dollar??? Click here to see answer by ptaylor(2058)
