Ok last night someone posed a question to me that made my head want to explode....so perhaps one of you will be able to figure this out.

There are three friends who go to a motel for the night. They split the $27 bill into equal thirds meaning they each pay 9 dollars.

The manager decides he wants their business again so he decides to refund them 5 dollars.

He then gives the $5 to an errand boy who brings it to the room. The little boy realizes that there are three friends and 5 dollars so he keeps two and gives them three.

With the refund each friend pays only 8 dollars. meaning the room cost $24.

So if they pay $24 and the errand boy keeps his $2. What happend to the other dollar?

yea. AHHHH
