So three guys are out hunting and its starting to get dark when they stumble onto a hunting lodge.  They communicate amongst themselves and decide to get a room for the night.  They ask the receptionist How much for a room?  she replies $30 bucks.  So the guys split the bill each paying ten dollars.  A few minutes later the receptionist realizes she made a mistake. She calls the bag boy and hands him $5 dollars and tells him, go give this to the guys that just came in, I forgot we were having a special on rooms tonight.  So on the way to the room the bag boy thinks to himself.  There's 5 dollars here and only 3 guys.  Well I'll keep 2 dollars for myself as a tip, and just give them each a dollar back.  So he gets to the room and hands each one of the guys a dollar and apologizes that they have been overcharged for their room.

Now the guys originally paid $30 for the room.  Each got a refund of a dollar, so that they now paid $9 dollars each.  Well last time I counted 9x3 was 27 and 27 plus the 2 dollars the bag boy kept only equals 29.  So where's the other dollar? Loco

The rules of maths are multiply and divide in the order they occur, add and subtract in the order they occur.
 
 
So 25 / 3 = 8.33 each paid to hotel.
3/3 = $1 returned to each
$2 taken by bagboy
(8.33 x 3) = $25 + $3 + $2 = $30
 
or another approach.
 
They paid $10 each = $30
They recieve back $1 each = $9 each paid for total hotel cost (room + thieving bagboy)
So 9 x 3 = $27 + $3 = $30

A new riddle.
 
A man is found dead, hanging 6 ft from the floor. There is nothing in the room but a puddle of water. How did he get up there to hang himself?

A man comes out of the desert, throat parched and he stumbles into the pub. Water water, croaks the man. So the barman pulls out a pistol and shoots him. Why???

I have lots of teeth but cannot bite - it's often the first step to quite a delight - I will keep your dignity though I don't speak.

Sounds like you really like having your hair combed as foreplay. "You know, when I'm looking good, I'm feeling good, baby!"
