3 men go into 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 only \$25, so he sent the bellboy to the 3 guy's room with \$5.
On the way the bellboy 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 bellboy kept = \$29.
Where is the other Dollar?
