# Where is the missing dollar?

## Question

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.
