Where is the missing dollar?

Question

Guest

Three men rented a room in a motel for a night. Each man paid $10 each totalling $30 for their rent. The morning when they already checked out, the motel manager realized that that particular room which they had rented was $25 and he had overcharged them $5. So he sends the boybell with the $5 refund. The boy on his way, realize that he can't divide the $5 evenly to three men so he decides to keep $2 in his pocket (steals) and pays each man $1 back.

Now each man paid $9 (10-1=9) and $9x3=$27. The boy kept $2+$27=$29. Where is the missing dollar?

They ended up paying the hotel $25 and the boy $2.

Of their original $30 payment, $25 stayed with the hotel, $3 came back to them, and $2 went to the boy.
