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.

:)

Now I have a terrible headache... math riddles always give me headaches... :-(

Oh yeah... almost forgot...

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!
