Can You Figure It Out? (2 Mins)
Created on: February 23rd, 2007
A riddle one of my friends told me. At first it seems impossible. The answer is: The Hotel has \$25 for the room, 3 men each got a dollar back, & the Bellhop has \$2 in his pocket. Whyd you think there was a dollar missing? LOL

I stole it. Actually the room cost \$25 and the bell hop took \$2 and gave each man \$1 back. \$25 + \$2 + (\$3 * 1) = \$30. Very old riddle.

The hotel has 25. Bellhop 2. The men have 3 back from the original 30. =30 / Also, it's "their" not there. :/

the men paid then \$27 total, the belhop kept two....it should be 27 MINUS 2 = 25. not 27 PLUS 2 = 29.

5 for being your first time, also the way it's presented does confuse you a bit at first =p

3*(10 - 1) -2 = 25 9*3 - 2 = 25 30 = 25 + 3 + 2

It said "..gave each man 3 dollars..." I know its besides the point, but at least review your work.

80% of ppl would get it if you didnt call it a riddle and didnt say where is the other dollar. the other 20 are probably homeless thinking that money is magic or somthing

The room only was only \$25, not \$30.
