3 guys go into a hotel and ask to book a room. The clerk says no problem that will be $30. They each give him $10 and go up to their room. The clerk then realises that he has over charged them and that it should only have been $25. He gives the $5 note to the bell boy and asks him to take it up to them. On the way up the bell boy realises that you cannot divide $5 evenly between 3 people and so he gives them $1 each and keeps the other $2 for himself. So the men ended up paying $9 each for the room.

If 3 x 9 is 27 and the bell boy kept $2 for himself where did the other dollar go??
