Three men check into a hotel.
The manager tells them the room rate is $30.00 per night.
Each man pays the hotel $10.00 and retreats to the room.
A few minutes later, the manager discovers he made a mistake and the
room charge is only $25.00 per night. He counts out five $1.00 bills and
gives them the bell man instructing him deliver these five $1.00 bills to
the room as reimbursement for the over charge.
The bell man is confused as to how to split $5.00 into 3 parts so the
bell man gives each man $1.00 and pockets the remaining $2.00.
Now How much did each of the 3 men end up paying for their share of the
If you say $9.00 you are right. ($10.00 less $1.00 refund is $9.00)
The remainder of the $5.00 after the $3.00 refund was $2.00 which the
bell man kept.
If each of the men paid a net of $9.00 for the room, then everyone knows
that 3 X $9.00 is $27.00.
Add in the $2.00 the bell man kept and the total is $29.00.
What happened to that dollar difference between $29 and $30. It seems
that all the money is accounted for but the question is
WHERE DID THE LAST DOLLAR GO?
