# What Happened to the Last Dollar?

• nucleartear
In summary, three guys go to a motel and pay $30 for a room. The owner realizes the room is only$25 and has the bellboy give back $5 to the guys. However, the bellboy keeps$2 for his girlfriend's birthday and gives the guys $3. This leads to a confusion about the missing$1, but in reality, the guys have paid $27 in total, with$25 going to the room and $2 going to the bellboy. The joke is that the bellboy was counted twice in the calculations. #### nucleartear There are three guys who go to a motel. They ask for a room, and the owner of the motel receives to them$30. After, when the three guys are at the room, the owner remember that room is only $25, so, he calls to the bellboy and say: "Give that$5 to the three guys". But tomorrow is his girlfriend's birthday, so the bellboy take $2 and only gives$3 to the three guys.

In the beginnig, each one had paid $10, but the bellboy has give them$1 to each one, so, they have paid $9 each one, and the bellboy has the$2, so... $9 +$9 + $9 +$2 = \$29

So, what's happened with that last dollar?

The bellhop shortchanged the three guys by two dollars.
Divide the two dollars among the 3 guys and you get sixty-seven cents each. Add the sixty-seven cents to the one dollar previously returned to each guy and you get one dollar sixty-seven cents times 3, which equals five dollars. Subtract the five dollars from the thirty dollars originally paid and you get the revised rate of twenty-five dollars.

The key is that we are counting the bellhop twice.

The bill is: 9 + 9 + 9 - 2 = 25
plus 2 for the bellhop makes 27.

The "plus two for the bellhop" is the hook.

Congratulations!

You have your first block to make a triangle!
