The equation sounds logical, but it's not mathmatically sound. The flaw is the adding of the \$2 instead of subtracting from \$27. 27-2=25 This accounts for the \$5 the bellhop started with properly.

He's the one who cut the West Street barber's hair.

10.  07/23/2010, 11:05 AM This is a story about three people (A, B and C) crossing a desert. A hated C and decided to kill him; he poisoned the water in his sack (only C had water). B also wanted to kill C (not knowing that the water of C had been already poisoned) and so B made a hole into the sack of C and the water spilled out. A few days later, C died of thirst. Who was the murderer - A or B?

I see you've never caramelized sugar in a teflon pan. ^^ In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. However the three-eyed man is still considered a freak. 'til we meet again. THL
20.  07/24/2010, 03:02 AM Originally Posted by Micael This one actually works pretty well at parties: 3 men go into a motel. The man behind the desk says the room is \$30, so each man pays \$10 and goes up to their room. A while later the manager behind the desk realizes the room was only \$25, so he sends the bellboy to the 3 guys' room with \$5. On the way, the bellboy can't figure out how to split \$5 evenly between 3 men, so he decides to give each man \$1 and keeps the other \$2 for himself. So, the 3 men each ultimately paid \$9 for the room, which is a total of \$27. Add the \$2 that the bellboy kept brings the total to \$29. Where is the missing dollar!? \$10 - initially paid by each man. -\$ 1 - returned to each man. \$ 9 - net cost to each man. x 3 - number of men. \$27 - total out of pocket for the men. +\$ 2 - what the bell boy keeps. \$29 - total account for dollars. You're stating that each man gave 8 for a room. 8x3=24. In reality, if the total was 25...each person paid about 8.33. Each got a dollar back which left three sets of 66 cents some place. 66x3=198. Remember, you have fractions to deal with here on the calculations. 198 is close to 2 and that's how you end with 2 dollars to the bell boy. They should have gotten 1.66/7 back, but the bell boy kept the change and made 2 dollars.
