```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?
```
