Think about this, 3 men walk into hotel and decide to share a room. Each room cost 30 dollars. So each man pay 10 dollars. (Three men + 10 dollars each = 30 dollars) The men head up to their room and start getting ready for bed. Meanwhile, the desk clerk remembers that he forgot to mention the discount and that each room on that day was only 25 dollars; so he heads up to give them their change. The desk clerk hands each of the three men 1 dollar and is told to keep 2 dollars. Now each man has paid 9 dollars and the clerk has 2, where is the last dollar? (9+9+9=27+2=29)

Welcome to the boards, brooke18.

This riddle is already part of the site and the discussion on it can be found here. Any further discussion can continue in that thread, so I'm going to close this one. Don't let that discourage you from posting other riddles, though.

If anyone wanting to post a riddle isn't sure if it's been discussed here before, just use the search feature for key words. For instance, for this riddle, a search for "hotel" will come up positive. Thanks.
