# Where did it go??

Three men went to a motel together and the clerk said the room would cost \$30.00.

Each man put in \$10.00 and they went to their room.

The clerk found he made a mistake and overcharged the three men by \$5.00.

He called the bellhop and gave him \$5.00 to give the men back.

The bellhop being a smart kid thought you can’t divide 5 by three so he put \$2.00 in his pocket and gave the men \$3.00 back.

So each man paid \$9.00 and the bellboy got \$2.00.

3x9=27+2=29   Where did the other dollar go?????

I believe the two dollars is part of the \$27 each man paid. So it should have been subtracted, not added to the equation that was given above. 3x9=27-2=\$25, which is the actual cost of the room.

The three men paid \$27.... the bill was \$25....  \$2 went to the bellhop....   \$27 - \$2 =\$25...  Were you looking for the answer ??

That's true Dave the bill was \$25 and the men paid \$27 the bellhop stole \$2 but the men were only supposed to pay \$25 so they overpaid by \$2 and the bellhop stole \$2 that makes \$4 plus the \$25 so where is the \$1 to make \$30

They overpaid by \$5. \$25 for the room \$3 returned and \$2 for the bellhop makes \$30.
