Here's a good one for a math person...
3 thru hikers check into a hotel. The room costs $30, each hiker gave the clerk
$10. The clerk discovers that the room was actually only $25, so he
gives the bellhop 5 one dollar bills to return to the hikers. The bell
hop can't figure out how to split the 5 bills evenly, so he keeps 2 of
the dollar bills ($2) and return three dollars to the weary hikers. (one
dollar to each hiker)
This means each hiker has paid only $9 ($10 - $1=$9)
3 men x $9 = $27
bellhop kept $2
$27 + $2 = $29
What happened to the other dollar ????????????????
P.S. I don't know either and it is making me crazy ........
