    You guys still can't figure this out?

    A few days later, C died of thirst.

    Who was the murderer - A or B?

    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.

    the room cost $25 so thats $8.33 each plus the $1 that they got back each so thats $9.33 per person. [9.33 x 3 = $28 + $2 for bellboy = $30 ]

    9.33 x 3 = $27.99

    25/3 =8.3333333
    5/3=1.6666666
    =29.99999

    The mistake is in thinking that $30 is the goal. The room costs $25, the men spent $9 each = $27 = $25 for the room + $2 the guy kept.

    Ok, ok.
    Here's the answer to this -
    Quote Originally Posted by dbdoinit View Post

    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?
    Annnnnnnnnnnnndd..... Begin:

    B didn't know the bag was poisoned and C is dead, so only A knows A tried to kill C, which means he'd likely blame B for cutting the bag.

    Now, B would probably blame A for cutting the bag because only A and B really know who did it, which would end in a stalemate at a court.

    Knowing this, it would be best if A and B agreed to blame C for cutting his own bag by accident. Of course, either A or B might back out of the agreement, telling the court know that a conspiracy was taking place, making it possible that both get blamed, so they would probably just blame each other and nobody would be convicted.

    Or, they would simply not tell anybody so nobody would get blamed. By the time the body was found, there wouldn't be any evidence to prove he was with them at the time he died, and if people knew he left with them they could just say he got lost and they never found him.

    Alternately, they could tell the police upon arrival that he got lost so it wouldn't be suspicious when they found a corpse lying in the desert.

    If the court knows A poisoned the bag and B cut the bag, B could possibly say he cut the bag so C couldn't drink the poisoned water. He could furthermore say he didn't just tell C the bag was poisoned because he was dehydrated and not thinking clearly.

    A would get attempted murder and B would either get off the hook or get negligent homocide. If the court also knows why B cut the bag, the murder should fall on B, and A should get attempted murder only.


    Now that was easy, wasn't it?

    a man leaves home jogging. After a short distance he turns left.
    After jogging further, he turn left again.
    He jogs some more, and sees two men to his left wearing masks.

    who are those men? And why is he jogging?

    He is playing baseball, he left home rounded 1st, then rounded 2nd. He sees the umpire and the catcher who are both wearing masks.

    Between the bell hop's ($2) and the hotel's ($25), there is $27. At the end of the night the three men have ($3) returned. 27/3 is 9. Each man paid $9.

    you have to add the bell hop's $2 to the hotel's $25 before you can divide.

    For those that may have missed it, I answered the "Where is the missing dollar?" riddle here.
