Three guys went to rent a hotel room. The clerk says the room will cost $30 dollars. They each put up a ten dollar bill, and head to their room. The clerk then remembers that there was a "special" on rooms that week, and realizes that he over-charged the three men. The room cost only $25 dollars. He then asked the bellhop to bring the difference up to the men, and pulls out five singles from the register. While heading up to the room, the bellhop can't figure out how the three men were going to split $5 dollars, so he pockets $2 dollars, and gives the men only $3 dollars, one dollar to each man. So, if each man only paid $9 dollars, and there was three men, 3 X $9 = $27, and the bellhop pocket $2 dollars, that makes $29 dollars... What happened to the missing $1 dollar?
