3 guys walk into a Hotel
So a TeaParty Member, an Occupier, and a Socialist were
traveling together when they decided they were tired and
stopped at a Hotel.
They went inside and asked the clerk how much for a room.
The rooms were $25, but the clerk needed $5 so he could "put 5
on it" so he told the protestors the room was $30. The
protestors agreed to the price and each paid 10 bucks and went
to the room.
Later the clerk was feeling guilty so he sent the bellhop with the
$5 up to give the protestors their money back.
On the way up, the bellhop thought to himself, hey these folks
dont know the real amount, so he decided to pocket 2 dollars
and ended up giving the protestors $3 back.
The protestors were happy that they each got a dollar back
making it to where they only paid $9 each.
So the protestors each paid $9 for the room and the bellhop
took $2 making the total 29.
Where is the other dollar?

At the end of the story, the clerk has 25, the bellhop has 2 and the travelers have a refund of 3. Still adds up to the original 30.

The travelers paid 9 each totaling 27, but you don't add the bellhops 2 to that you subtract 2 giving 25, which is what the clerk received.

The final result is the travelers paid 27, the bellhop took 2, giving the clerk 25.

No missing dollar.

Re: 3 guys walk into a Hotel
9 x 3 = 27 - 2 = 25

the price they paid changes mid story from 30 to 25 yet at the end of the riddle you ask us to solve for 30.

I didn't ask you to solve for 30, the riddle does. It is up to you to figure it out (which you did). Its math.

The fact that most people dont figure that out might be one reason our economy is so fucked up.
