3 guys get a hotel room paying $10 each, the manager tells the bellhop the room is only $25 and hands him 5 $1 bills as change. The bellhop brings them their money and puts $2 in his pocket, giving the 3 men $1 each. This means they only payed $9 each. 9x3 = 27. 27 + the 2 in his pocket = 29.

Who was phone?

It's 27 - the 2 in his pocket though. They paid a net of $27 for the room and tip.

It's not that hard dude.

The truth is, Muslims never apologized for their faith having something to do with the attacks on 9/11.

No. THEY payed for the bellhop's tip; the bellhop did not chip in for the room.

$30 paid
-$25 for room.
-$2 for tip
-$3 in change
$0 left over.

That wasn't even clever, you just said "that means they payed $9 each" when it was previously stated they payed $10 each.

Changing the facts at the end of a story doesn't make it a mind****. This was pointless.
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

whoever came up with that is HORRIBLE at math. Why would you add what the bellhop took with 9x3? That's just... stupid. Why would you expect it to add up to 30? No wat here. It makes complete sense, if you actually do correct math.

He's asking where the last 1 went...

What last 1? After the change, they end up paying $27. $25 room + $2 tip, it's not that complicated.

Yes, it's a terrible question, but the idea is to be "Oh, they originally paid 30, but through a series of un-needed and terribly convoluted math problems, it appears there's only 29 dollars paid. WTF?!?!?!"
#21
I don't get the phone part, but this is just a problem that words the conclussion to confuse.

They paid $10 each and then $5 was given back. They obtain 3 but 5 is taken from the original cost. So although it claims they paid $9 each when they really paid 9 and 1/3.

9.3333333 x 3 = $28

Also, I was expecting this thread to contain the pear
