1. here's a riddle for everyone...

3 guys walk into a hotel, they ask how much a room for all 3 of 'em would be. the attendant tells them \$30, so they each put in \$10. after a little while the attendant starts feeling a little bad about charging them so much so he decided to give \$5 back. he tells the bellboy to take the \$5 and give it evenly to the 3 guys. he can't figure how to split \$5 3 ways so he keeps \$2 and gives each guy back \$1. this means they each paid \$9 for the room. now, \$9x3 = \$27. add the \$2 that the bellboy kept and you get \$29. where's the other dollar?

can ya figure it out???

if ya get it don't spoil it for everyone else. if you get too frustrated PM me and i'll give ya the answer

2. i think they overpaid.

15. better be nice........
hint
cottens told me ima smartie
peace

16. OK let me start again..

30 dollars paid

- 5.00 given to the boy=25.00

The boy give 3.00 to the customers and kept 2.00

The register has 25.00
the cutomers have 3.00
the boy has 2.00

Total 30.00 dollars.

The man at the register kept one dollar if he was only charging 8.00 each for the room!

17. LOL

18. Is that right or not mrs. Highya?

19. sorrry cottens...budhead makes me do these things.
well bud,
well your maths right but you dont understand it.
first there is no money kept in the drawer lol and quit callin me mrs higha.......
they each pay 10....=30
-5 to give back for pity

3 for each guy to get back
2 for the bellboy=5

so indeed each guy did only pay 9\$ for the room but it doesnt matter for the math
