Hall of Fame
Categories : logic : 29.p

Three people check into a hotel.  They pay $30 to the manager and go
to their room.  The manager finds out that the room rate is $25 and
gives $5 to the bellboy to return.  On the way to the room the bellboy
reasons that $5 would be difficult to share among three people so
he pockets $2 and gives $1 to each person.

Now each person paid $10 and got back $1.  So they paid $9 each,
totalling $27.  The bellboy has $2, totalling $29.

Where is the remaining dollar?
