Three men go into a hotel and rent a room. The cost of the room is \$30 (Pounds, euros, etc) They each pay 10 dollars.
After they get to their room the hotel manager realizes that he over charged them, the room should only cost \$25, so he gives the Bell hop \$5 to give back to the men.
The Bell hop realizes that 5 will not divide evenly by three people so he gives each man \$1, and keeps \$2 for himself.
Since each man paid \$10 and recieved \$1 back that means that they each paid \$9. \$9 x 3 (the three men) means they paid \$27 plus the \$2 that the bell hop kept equals \$29. So where did the other dollar go?

Each man paid \$9.33 and 1/3 since they each "chipped" in 66 and 2/3 cents to tip the bell boy.

You are very clever MS, here's a few more:

1. Johnny's mother had three children. The first child was named April. The second child was named May. What was the third child's name?

2. If, having only one match, on a freezing winter day, you entered a room which contained a lamp, a kerosene heater, and a wood burning stove, which should you light first.

3. What 4 letter sport starts with a T ?

4. Because cigars cannot be entirely smoked, a hobo who collects cigar butts can make a cigar to smoke out of every 5 butts that he finds. Today, he has collected 25 cigar butts. How many cigars will he be able to smoke?

5. What English word can have 4 of its 5 letters removed and still retain it's original pronunciation?

Very impressive arc, 4 out of 5!

The only one you missed was #4.
