Three guests check into a hotel room. The clerk says the bill is $30, so each guest pays $10. Later the clerk realizes the bill should only be $25. To rectify this, he gives the bellhop $5 to return to the guests. On the way to the room, the bellhop realizes that he cannot divide the money equally. As the guests didn't know the total of the revised bill, the bellhop decides to just give each guest $1 and keep $2 for himself.

Now that each of the guests has been given $1 back, each has paid $9, bringing the total paid to $27. The bellhop has $2. If the guests originally handed over $30, what happened to the remaining $1?

It's supposed to be an odd number.

When you're as bad at math as I am, all numbers are odd. :D

I had to read this many times. There isn't an extra dollar; the hotel got their $25, the bell hop got $2 and the guests got $3 which totals thirty bucks.

Did I count that right? :goof:

Yes you did. CA's riddle is the more sophisticated version of the riddle:

    Farmer Joe has 17 sheep. All but nine die. How many are left?
