This will Really Mess With Your Mind

3 men go to 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 on special at only $25, so he sent the bell boy to return the $5.

On the way, the bell boy couldn't figure out how to split $5 evenly between 3 men, so he gave each man a $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 bell boy kept = $29.


Can you figure out the answer? Mind to share with me..

The arithmetic is wrong. You cannot add another $2 to the $27 because it is already accounted for. $25 room + $2 tips makes $27 remember?

at rm 25, each man actually paid $8.33, giving back $1 to each man means they hav $9.33 which amounted to $28. so the $2 give to bell boy makes $30
