3 guys and the motel bill


Recommended Posts

HI :)

Three men were working out of town and decided to split the cost of the room 3 ways. The room was 30.00. Each paid ten dollars, right?

Ok...so, the motel manager thought about it, and decided he'd charged them too much. He had the bellboy take back 5$ to the men.

Well, the bellboy kept two dollars of the money, and took $3.00 back to the men.

So, if each man got one dollar back, that means each man paid $9.00 for his share of the room.

The bellboy kept 2.00 which totals:

9 times 3=27

2 (bellboy) =29

Where did the other dollar go?
