Three men go into a motel. The man behind the desk said the room is $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 three guys’ room with $5. On the way, the bellboy couldn’t figure out how to split the $5 evenly between the 3 men, so he gave each man $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. Where is the other dollar?
