right now you can get 15
if you bring the wrappers back you can get another 5
from those you can get 1 more
adding that wrapper to the 2 left over from the 5 you can get 1 more
all in you spent \$15 and got 22 candy bars

and diabetes

I'm retarded.

The connection that a wrapper was a part of the chocolate bar didn't occur to me at all. I was thinking it's some other 'wiget'. lol

Three long time best friends decide to take a road trip. They decide to stop and get a hotel room for the night. Agreeing it would be cheaper, they decided to split the cost of one room. The man at the desk tells them it will be \$30 for the night so they each chip in \$10 but when the man at the desk finishes putting in the information in the computer the room was rated at \$25 for the night so he gave them back \$5 in change. The three friends decide to each take \$1 and give the man the remaining \$2.

Question:
If each of the three guys paid \$10 and got \$1 back that means they each paid \$9 for a total of \$27, add in the \$2 that they gave the man and it comes to a total of \$29. What happened to the extra dollar?

the way you have it worded, you need to subtract the 2 from the 27 not add it
they each gave him 10
10 + 10 + 10 = 30
he gave back 3 from the total
30 - 3 = 27
he kept 2 from the remaining total
27 - 2 = 25
the room cost 25
25 - 25 = 0
all accounted for

or you could go with it this way
the room cost 25
add the 2 they tipped the guy
25 + 2 = 27
they each paid 9
9 + 9 + 9 = 27
again all accounted for
