HELP! I hate math.. someone e-mailed this to me and it's driving me crazy!!!!



3 MEN GO INTO A MOTEL. THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK SAID THE ROOM

IS $30 SO EACH MAN PAID $10 AND WENT TO THE ROOM.



A WHILE LATER THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK REALIZED

THE ROOM WAS ONLY $25.



SO HE SENT THE BELLBOY TO THE 3 GUYS' ROOM WITH $5.

ON THE WAY THE BELLBOY COULDN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO SPLIT $5

EVENLY BETWEEN 3 MEN, SO HE GAVE EACH MAN A $1 AND KEPT THE

OTHER $2 FOR HIMSELF.



THIS MEANT THAT THE 3 MEN EACH PAID $9 FOR THE ROOM, WHICH

IS A TOTAL OF $27, ADD THE $2 THAT THE BELLBOY KEPT = $29.



WHERE IS THE OTHER DOLLAR?

they didnt pay 9 each for the room. the room cost 25. add the 3 that was given back and thats the amount paid by each person.thats 28 and 2 for tip makes 30. Math is dope.

divide the 28 by 3 and that is each persons expense. its not 9. chuch.

i hate these cuz i cant sleep without figuring them out.

this what i got so far.....

they each paid 10 for a 30 dollar room, but it was 25....the bellboy only came with 5....its 3. it wont be even because $25 divided by 3 people would give you like 8.33333 so when it says it means each paid 9, well with the extra dollar its more like they each paid 9.333. which would get damn there $28

so if you take .333 times 3....it will come close to 1. the missing dollar. the question just leaves out the 33 cents. gay ass bellboy should of just gave them the five bucks and let them fight it out.....that would save me all this time trying to figure this out....i hate these type of questions lol. i cant sleep without finishing......and why are 3 guys going into a motel that cost $25 a night???

Mr. Nice Guy said...
