RIDDLE TIME

Here is a riddle for y'all....can you explain this to me???

I have read it a number of times and everytime I try to figure it out I go HUH????? lmao

If ya know the answer be sure to share...

3 MEN GO INTO A MOTEL.
THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK SAID THE ROOM IS £30 SOEACH 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 POUND?

As always, to be continued...........

That's a tough one.

If the room cost 25 and the guy gave back three that is 28

Then 2 for himself is 30

lol yup hammer...but if ya look at it the other way...they paid 10...got back 1 each...so they paid 9 each

9x3=27 plus the 2 he kept =29

why doesn't the math work out that way too?? lmao

Because the room was $ 25; they got back $3 and the bellboy got the remaining $2. Which equals $30.
