Hi all this is my first post, like most im not sure if its in the right place but here goes.
After seeing a couple of threads about the year you were born and your age adding up to 111, which isn't really anything special, i was reminded of a
number puzzle which i thought i would share. i think its quite well known but in case you havent heard it i'll post it.
3 friends go to a hotel to spend the night, they go to the check in desk where they are asked to pay 30 pound for the room. they agree that 10 pound
each is fair and split accordingly. they pick up their bags and go to their room. They are only in the room for a minute when a bell boy knocks at the
He tells them that their was a special offer on at the moment and their room should of only been 25 pound not 30. With this he hands over 5 pounds in
change. The men, not being able to split 5 pounds evenly, decide to keep a pound each and give the bellboy 2 pound as a tip.
Now, with the blokes getting a pound back they have only spent 9 pound each on the room. 3 x 9 = 27 plus the 2 pound tip to the bell boy this equalls
Where did the other pound go???
