Help me to solve this!

Okay, this morning 小丁 gave me an IQ question to solve. I remember I tried this question before, but some how I couldn't remember the way to explain it. Really confusing... So here goes the question :-

3 men go into a motel.

The man behind the desk said the room is $30, so each man paid $10 and went to the room.

A while later the man behind the desk realized the room was only $25, so he sent the bellboy to the 3 guys' room with $5.

On the way, the bellboy couldn't figure out how to split $5 evenly between 3 men, so he gave each man a $1 and kept the other $2 for himself.

This meant that the 3 men each paid $9 for the room, which is a total of $27, add the $2 that the bellboy kept = $29.

So where is the other dollar?

  1. He he! I got the answer d - it's easy. The last sentence was simply there to mislead you. Change the sentence around and you'll realize the answer. ;-)
