Three men decided to split the cost of a hotel room. The hotel manager gave them a price of $30.

The men split the bill evenly, each paying $10, and went to their room. However, the hotel manager realized that it was a Wednesday night, which meant the hotel had a special: rooms were only $25. He had overcharged them $5!

He called the bellboy, gave him five one-dollar bills and told him to return it to the men.

When the bellboy explained the situation to the men, they were so pleased at the honesty of the establishment that they promptly tipped the bellboy $2 of the $5 he had returned and each kept $1 for himself.

So each of the three men ended up paying $9 (their original $10, minus $1 back) totaling $27, plus $2 for the bellboy makes $29.

Where did the extra dollar go?

Hi Gang!
Is that money US$ or BZ$?

Seriously, the reasoning of the calculation isn't logical. The guys paid $25 for the hotel room, $2 for the tip ($27), and then got $1 back each to make the original $30. The $2 they got back is part of the $27, you can't add it again as a tip. right? this is a little hard to get your mind around - especially without the assistance of a couple of Belikins!
