1. ## The disappearing dollar

3 men go into a motel.

The man behind the desk said the room was \$30, so each man paid \$10 and went to the room.

A while later the man behind the desk realized the room was only \$25, so he sent the bellboy to the 3 guys' room with \$5.

On the way the bellboy couldn't figure out how to split \$5 evenly between 3 men, so he gave each man a \$1 and kept the other \$2 for himself.

This meant that the 3 men each paid \$9 for the room, which is a total of \$27, add the \$2 that the bellboy kept = \$29.

So, where is the other dollar?

The \$2 should be subtracted from the \$27 the men paid, not added to it. They paid \$27, the bellboy kept \$2, the remaining \$25 is the price of the room.</font color=yellow></span hi>
