Enjoy debating the incorrect answer all you want!
For christ sakes man... they handed $30 to the clerk and then got $3 back from the bellboy. You can use what ever mathematical mumbo jumbo you want to turn that into $28, but you are simply wrong and you need to deal with it.

I suggest you get yourself a calculator and work through the math.
Maybe in doing the calculations for yourself you will see why the answer I gave is the correct one.

Buddy, Get 30 One dollar bills, Hand them over to the chair, make the chair give $5 back to your pencil, have your pencil keep $2 and have the pencil give you $3 back. You'll figure it outedit on 3/6/2014 by PsychoEmperor because: Typo

Here's another; when a sheepherder died and had 17 sheep and his will stated that he gives 1/2 to his oldest son, 1/3 to the middle son and 1/9 to the youngest son. No one could figure out how to do this so they asked a wise man and he lent them 1 sheep. Then they had 18 so they gave 9 to the oldest, 6 to the middle one, and 2 to the youngest. Then returned the sheep to the wise man.

Don't know why you guys are picking on Korg - his analysis was correct. The did in fact pay 9.33333... each x 3 = 28 for the room because the bellboy kept $2 of their refund.

Not true, they paid $9 each, $27 total. OF which the bellboy kept $2 and the hotel received $25.

The problem is which point of view you use. From the POV of the hotel the people paid $8.33333... x 3 =25. From the POV of the guests they paid 3x9=27. From the POV of the bellboy they paid 3 x 9.333333 = 28.
