1. ## The Missing dollar.

Three men go to a hotel to stay over for the night. The clerk tells the men that each room is $30 per night. To save money the three men decide to share one room and each pay$10. Later the clerk relies that the room is really $25 per night and sends the bell boy to return the$5 back to the three men. Not knowing how to split the $5 three ways the bell boy gives each of the men$1 back and keeps the $2 for him self. Now each man has payed$9 for the room for a total of $27, and the bell boy kept$2 for a grand total of $29. Where is the last$1?

Sends the bell boy to return the $5 back to the three men. Not knowing how to split the$5 three ways the bell boy gives each of the men $1 back and keeps the$2 for him self.

The bellboy was sent to return the $5 bucks to the THREE men, so he gives$1 to the first man, $1 to the secound man and$1 to the third man and keeps \$2 himself

1+1+1+2 = 5.
