So these 3 guys go to a hotel and they decide it would be cheaper to get one room. They tell the guy at the desk that they want a room and he tells them it will be \$30 for the night. Each of the 3 guys give the man at the desk \$10. After the man at the desk finishes the paperwork he tells the guys that the room was discounted to \$25 so they will get \$5 back. They decide that they each get \$1 back meaning they only paid \$9 each. Since they couldn't split the last \$2 they gave it to the man at the desk as a tip. My question is, since they only paid \$9 each and \$9 times 3 people is \$27 and the \$2 they gave the man at the desk makes \$29, where is the extra dollar?

what, is this fucking riddle day or something?

edit: don't multiply 3x9. you add \$25+3(each) to get 28. plus the \$2 to the clerk.
