Riddle: Three men went to a hotel and asked for a room. The hotel clerk said it would be \$30 for a room.
Each of the men paid an even \$10 to pay for the room. Once the men got in the room the hotel clerk noticed she had charged them \$5 too much, so she gave the bellboy \$5 too take to the men. The bellboy wondered how to divide \$5 unto 3 men, so he kept 2 of the dollars and gave each man \$1. If each man paid \$10 and they each got one back they really only paid \$9 each right. Well if the three men each paid a total of \$9 (\$9 times 3 men is \$27 total)and the bellboy kept\$2 9 times 3 = 27 + the bellboy's 2 = 29 were is the last dollar? (the men paid 30 to begin with)
Answer: The bellboy had \$5 and each man paid \$10. The clerk took 5 out of the 30 leaving \$25, so all together the men paid \$25 the bellboy gave one dollar to each of them, but they still paid only \$25 altogether. 25 + the 3 they got back from the bellboy + the 2 the bellboy had = \$30
