Instant KarmaI can see for miles User ID: 30388691 United States 02/17/2013 12:51 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | So a TeaParty Member, an Occupier, and a Socialist were Quoting: 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? Anonymous Coward 1653538 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. Last Edited by Instant Karma on 02/17/2013 12:58 PM |

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. |
