Rules: Find WHO has the dollar i dont want numbered answers & Find the answer to this one before posting a new one

3 guys go to a hotel
the room they want is 30 bucks so every one of them pay 10 bucks to the manager

later that night the manager realises that room was only 25$ so he goes to the 3 guys room to give them their 5$

the manager doesnt know how to split 5$ in 3 so he gives every one of the 3 guys 1$ and keeps 2$ for himself

now since every guy received one dollar off their 10$ back they each paid 9$ for their room

9 x 3 = 27
27 + 2 = 29 (the 2 is what the manager kept)

where is the last dollar? :confused:

You did your math in the wrong order. That is where your extra dollar went.

Oh god that explanation sucked. Let me rephrase. The 3 guys have that 1 spare dollar. You're supposed to add 3 dollars to that 27, since that's what the guys get back.

If he gives back 1 dollar to each, and then takes 2 dollars for himself, that leaves 2 guys paying 8 dollars and 1 guy paying 9 dollars.

As I was going to saint Ives, I saw a man with seven wives.

Each of his wives had seven sacks.

In each sack was seven cats.

Every cat had seven kittens.

How many were going to saint Ives?

theres no bench or anything to get on so that your feet dont touch the ground but the guy was still alone and locked in that room

(dont know how to say this properly but theres alot of liquid on the ground under him)

Pfft, you stole that from the site.
That's plagiarism.

There are 100 people and 100 CLOSED doors.
Person number 1 opens all the doors
Person number 2 closes every even door
Person number 3 opens or closes every 3rd door
and so on until person 100 opens or closes the 100th door.

Which doors are left opened at the end?

Note: NOT a trick question
