    Talking Where is the other Dollar ?

    This will Mess With Your Head.
    3 MEN GO INTO A MOTEL.THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK SAID THE ROOM
    IS $30,
    SO EACH MAN PAID$10 AND WENT TO THE ROOM.

    A WHILE LATER THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK REALIZEDTHE ROOM WAS ONLY$25,

    SO HE SENT THE BELLBOY TO THE 3 GUYS' ROOM WITH$5.ON THE WAY,

    THE BELLBOY COULDN'T FIGURE OUTHOW TO SPLIT$5 EVENLY BETWEEN 3 MEN,

    SO HE GAVE EACH MAN A$1 AND

    KEPT THE OTHER$2 FOR HIMSELF.

    THIS MEANT THAT THE 3 MEN EACH PAID$9FOR THE ROOM,

    WHICH IS A TOTAL OF$ 27,

    ADD THE$2 THAT THE BELLBOY KEPT = $29.

    WHERE IS THE OTHER DOLLAR?

    $30 as paid, the bell boy kept $2...so $28 was paid for the room. So each guy paid $9.33

    What is hard to catch in the reading is that since the room is now $25, the $25 was split 3 ways = $8.33 each + $1 each = $9.33 x 3 = 27.99 + $2 from bell boy
