Title: Solve this Puzzle : Where is the Missing $1?
Post by: atmavichar100 on January 08, 2013, 02:36:27 PM
 Three people check into a hotel. They pay $30 to the manager and go to their room. The manager suddenly remembers that the room rate is $25 and gives $5 to the bellboy to return to the people. On the way to the room the bellboy reasons that $5 would be difficult to share among three people so he pockets $2 and gives $1 to each person. Now each person paid $10 and got back $1. So they paid $9 each, totalling $27. The bellboy has $2, totalling $29. Where is the missing $1?

Try your hand with this, and post your answers if you can solve it.

Will announce the solution later

Each person paid $9. So three people paid $27. $25 is with Manager. $2 is with bell boy.

This is how Maya works I guess :)
