Three men go to a hotel and decide to split the cost of a room. Don't ask, I don't know why. Anyway the desk clerk tells them it'll be $30. So each man tosses in a $10-bill. Later that night the clerk realizes the room is actually $25, so he calls the bellhop over and hands him 5-$1-bills and tells him to return the $5 to the men. On the way to the room, the bellhop realizes that the bills won't divide evenly among the three men, so he decides to give each man $1 and keep the remaining $2 for himself, which he does.
So each man paid $10 and got $1 back. So each man paid $9, for a total of $27. The bellhop kept $2, for a total of $29. Where did the other dollar go?!
I'll share the answer after there has been sufficient frustration.
