Three men went to a motel. The motel manager said a room cost $30, so each man put up $10 and went to their room. A little while later the manager realized the room was only $25, so he sent the bellhop back to the three guys' room with $5. On the way to the room the bellhop couldn't figure out how to split the $5 between the 3 men, so he gave each one of them $1 and he kept the other $2.

This meant that the 3 men paid $9 each for the room for a total of $27. Add the $2 that the bellhop kept = $29.

Where did the other dollar go?

I know! I know! I'll let the others take a stab at it first, though.

Olaf - MAN I HATE math questions! I've actually saw the answer many years ago, but I cannot remember the correct answer. There is a little trick to it...but I can't remember it. Driving me crazy! Besides...it's too late here now to be thinking about it.

Great - thanx Olaf! Now it's going to keep me awake....

Yes, I too dislike these mathmatical q/a's, but at the same time, keeps the mind sharp. I want to say, "The extra dollar went to the sales tax" something stupid and lame like that, but math was always my worst subject in school, H/S, College, and when I see the answer, will remind me how much I need remedial math again!! LOL!! :lol: 8)

Okay Deansolo, et al - here's your trivia question for the day:
(again ... no searching, please!!)

"Name the song and the band/artist" is the category. Here's your lyrics:

He Had To Have A Berth Or He Couldn't Get To Sea
I Had Another Look And I Had A Cup Of Tea And Butter Pie

(slight hint - should be pretty easy for those of us 40+ yrs. of age)

Ehrrr. Sorry, Stratattack, but the correct answer should have been John Mayall and the Blues Breakers ( awwww). We do have a nice complimentary prize to send home with you. A shiny, gold RX-7! Hey, you did a great job so don't look down! And, we'll be right back . . .

Answer to The Missing Dollar

The answer is in the way the question is worded. You cannot add what one person HAS to what someone else has PAID and come up with any kind of a meaningful number, you have to subtract.
Each man has paid $9.
The bellhop has $2.
Difference
$9 x 3 = $27
2
$25

The hotel clerk has the other 25 dollars.
To look at it from the standpoint of the original $30. Each man has $1.
The bellhop has $2.
The hotel clerk has $25.
Total
$1 x 3 = $3
2
25
$30
