ok here goes-
Three guys walk into a shitty motel which costs \$30 per night- They each decide to split it three ways and so they each throw in \$10 each. As it turns out, the motel is running a special that night and the rooms are actually \$25 instead of 30. The man at the desk gives the bellhop the 5 dollars to give back to the men. Rather then give them back the five dollars though, the bellhop keeps \$2 for himself and only gives them back \$3. If he gives them back \$3 and they split it evenly amongst themselves, they technically only paid \$9 each for the room- And \$9 x 3 people is \$27 dollars for the night. But then why is \$30 -\$2 (the money the bellhop kept) equal to \$28 dollars?

I don't know the answer to this one, I still can't figure it out- I hope someone on here can

Its \$30 -\$3, not \$30 -\$2.

It equals \$27.

He kept \$2, and 2+25=27, not 28.

:flame: I can't believe the pothead got the answer before a bunch of engineers sitting around a table for 8 hours.
