Three Men And A Room
Here’s a brain teaser that should keep both sides of your brain busy for some time. The problem is simple while the solution is difficult.
What we know…
Three men pay $10 each to rent a room or $30 as a group.
The clerk discovers he has overcharged the group at the group rate by $5.
He gives the bellhop the $5 to return to the three men.
The bellhop decides that $5 is too hard to divide by three and gives each man a dollar and keeps the remaining $2 for himself.
The three men have now paid $9 each, the bellhop has kept $2, making the total $29.
Where did the remaining dollar go?
Go on… Don’t give up too easily. Work on it for a while.
