Heard this on the radio Monday morning, so did probably half the forum, but I'II put it up anyway. 3 men rent a motel room at the cost of $30 ($10 each). After a short while, the manager realises he over charged the 3 men and gives the bell boy $5 to return to the men. The bell boy decides it's too hard to split $5 three ways so gives the men $3 and keeps $2 for himself. Each man has now recieved $1 refund, so has each paid $9 for the room. 3 x $9 =$27, and the bell boy has $2, total $27 + $2 = $29 :? Where did the other $1 go??
