Riddle thingy

3 Men go to a hotel and book a room, it costs £30 so they pay £10 each. Later the hotel manager realises he has overcharged and the room should have been £25 so he sends the bell boy to give the men their change. The bell boy can't be bothered to work out the change so gives the men a pound each and keeps £2 for himself.

 

The men have paid £9 each (x 3 = £27) and the bell boy kept £2 (total = £29).

 

Where has the other pound gone?

This is easily the third time this has been posted.

 

Yes, memory jogged!

 

Ans someone started getting very irate that no one was providing the answers, and that it was basically a bollocks trick question

Did it get lost in a web of deceit? Or wrapped up in a tissue of lies?

It's a pound each.

 

Look simply:

 

They pay £10 each. (£30)

 

Hotel Manager takes £25 pound. (£5 remaining)

 

Bellboy takes £2. (£3 remaning)

 

They all take £1 each. It works, it's just worded like a bitch.

The £2 is included in the £27 so is irrelevant, the £29 is from nowhere. They've paid £27 of which the bell boy has £2. They walk off with a £1 each in their pocket. 27 + 3 = 30. It all works.  :frantic: :frantic:
