After relating the story of the pizza ‘date’ with my coworker that despite her feminist tendancies had not problem making some of my money disappear, I present you a old riddle exactly about a missing dollar.
So three people check into a hotel room. The clerk says the bill is $30, so each person splits it 10$ each.
Later, the clerk feels bad for the 3 guys sharing the room, so he is only going to charge 25$. To rectify this, he gives the bellhop $5 to return to the guests. On the way to the room, the bellhop realizes that he cannot divide the money equally. He has only dollar bills.
As the guests didn’t know the total of the revised bill, the bellhop decides to just give each guest $1 and keep $2 for himself.
He gives them all their dollar back,meaning each person paid 9$ total (10-1 for those of you lacking math comprehension)
So, the 3 people paid 9 each, and the bellhop has 2, 3×9 is 27 and bellhop has 2, for a total of 29.
A TOTAL OF 29!?
Where did that damn dollar go?
For fun, dont just go look it up, try to figure it out.
