Where\'s the extra dollar

Three guys decide to go to wherever for the weekend. In-order to save money they decide to share a hotel room, When they check in the clerk charges them 30 dollars for the room so they each give him a 10. After they go up to the room and get settled in. The clerk realizes the room should have been \$ 25 so he gives \$5 to the bell hop and tells him to return it to them.

The bell hop figures there is no way to split \$5 evenly so he decides to give each man \$ 1 and keep \$2 for himself so if he gives each guy \$9 (thats 3x9=27) and keeps 2 for him self (27+2=29) Where'd the other dollar go??? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Not only that, but the way you've written it, if the bellhop gives each guy \$9 then the bellhop is seriously screwing himself

Re: Where\'s the extra dollar

This exact joke was on Mark and Brian yesterday morning. It took them about 15 minutes and 4 different listeners phoning in to figure out the answer...
