Someone posted this to me today and I was wondering if anyone could give me a simple answer and explanation as to what is wrong with the maths logic
here... Here it is...
Three men went to a hotel to rent a room, the cost of the room was $30. Each man paid $10 to the bellboy and proceeded to their room. After a little
while the bellboy realized that there was a special on rooms that night and the price for the men's room should have been $25. On his way to the
men's room to give them back $5, he was puzzled how he was going to split $5 as he had no change. He decided he would give them each $1 and keep the
remaining $2 for himself. So each man originally paid $10, but after the bellboy gave each man $1 back, each man paid $9.
9 x 3 = $27 plus the $2 the bellboy put in his pocket equals $29. The original price for the room was $30. Where did the last dollar go?
