3 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 there room. After a little while the bellboy realized that there was a special on rooms that night and the price for the mens room should have been $25. On his way to the mens 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?

Good luck with that...

I'll add this one to the puzzles.

It may already be there it is very well known but it can go in twice - it doesn't matter.

thanks for sharing it Pumpkinguy.

I don't think it has actually been answered properly. Does anyone want to have the honour?

If you want to answer my puzzle or want to try this yourself, then do NOT read this.

This is a hint.

***SPOILER BEGIN***

Notice when you add 1 dollar plus one dollar plus one dollar, that makes 3 dollars, and when you add that to the 2 the bellboy kept then it is 5. 30 dollars minus 5 is 25. There's a hint.

***SPOILER END***

Hope I helped!
