Fun Funny Math Riddles:
friends check into a motel for the night
and the clerk tells them the bill is $30,
payable in advance. So, they each pay the
clerk $10 and go to their room. A few minutes
later, the clerk realizes he has made an
error and overcharged the trio by $5. He
asks the bellhop to return $5 to the 3 friends
who had just checked in.
The bellhop sees this as an opportunity
to make $2 as he reasons that the three
friends would have a tough time dividing
$5 evenly among them; so he decides to tell
them that the clerk made a mistake of only
$3, giving a dollar back to each of the
friends. He pockets the leftover $2 and
goes home for the day! Now, each of the
three friends gets a dollar back, thus they
each paid $9 for the room which is a total
of $27 for the night.
We know the bellhop pocketed $2 and adding
that to the $27, you get $29, not $30 which
was originally spent. Where did the other
