    3 guys walk into a motel

    they ask for a room

    30 dollars

    they each pay 10

    they go to thier room

    the owner is like shit, its a special today, its only 25

    he sends the bell boy up to give them 5 dollars

    he doesnt know how to divide 5 into 3 so he gives them just 3 singles

    this said,

    each guy paid 9 dollars, thats 27, the bell boy has 2, thats 29 wheres the last dollar?

    it took me like a half hour of thinking, my dickhead boss is like they each paid 9.33

    arguing for like 2 hours, see if u can figure it out



    :D

    the two that the bell boy still has has already been added in 25+2=27

    The way that it is worded, you add the 2 in again 27+2=29

    The 3 never gets added in again to make 30 ;)










    Is that right?
