3 men went to a motel. The man behind the desk said the room is $30, so each man put up $10 each and went to the room. A little while later he realized the room was only $25, so he sent the bellhop back to the 3 guys room with $5. On the way to the room the bellhop couldn't figure how to split the $5 between the 3 guys so he just gave each one of them $1 and he kept the other $2. That left the 3 guys paying $9 each for the room. 3x9=27 + the 2 that the bellhop kept = $29. Where's the other dollar?

The two dollars doesnt even enter the equation. They dont even know they couldnt have payed for it. 30-3=27. 27/3=9. 27-2(That the bellhop took)=25 (What they should have payed) 27+3 (They recieved back)=30(What they originally payed) Yeah, I liked it, it gets you thinking.
