its a riddel i have yet to get so here it is

3 men go into a motel. The man behind the desk said the room is $30. So each man paid $10 and went into the room. A while later the man behind the desk realized the room was only $25. So he sent the bellboy to the 3 guys' room with $5, on the way the bellboy couldent 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 each man paid $9 for the room, which is a total of $27, add the $2 that the bellboy keep = $29 so were is the other dollar?

my friends math teacher gave the class this riddel as extra creadit

and he is a collage professer in math and took him 3 days to get it

so i dont think anyone on here will get it

but try my friends try

ur joking right? they paid 10 dollars each. then got one back, so they really only paid 9 dollars each. 9 dollars x 3 people = 27 dollars = 25 (cost of room) + 2 (tip)

the whole riddle is based on the word usage, think before you speak
