# 3*10=29? Can u slove this?

Three of us went to a hotel and we had \$10 each. Our bill was \$30 and we gave \$10 each. a discount of \$5 was given. Dividing \$5 is tough between 3, so we gave \$2 tips and took \$1 each. So now we spent \$9 each. 9*3=\$27 plus \$2 tips = \$29. What happened to the remaining dollar.

Relevance

1. 3 of you went with \$ 10 each , so you have 10*3 = \$ 30.

2. There is a bill for \$ 30 with \$ 5 discount, so you have to pay \$ 25.

3. You can not devide 5 in 3 pars so you give away \$ 2 at tip.

4. The amount spent mounts to \$ 25 +\$ 2 = \$ 27.

5. You are left with \$ 3, which you devided in 3 parts. So, all of you have \$ 1 each.

Now, if you see the question in perspective of one of the 3 people. The addtional \$ 2 are spent in giving away the other 2 frineds their share of \$ 3 left.

So, in this case the dollar left is with you.

Enjoy the dollar.

• 3 x 10 = 30

\$5 discount = \$25

\$2 tip = \$27

leaving \$3 which is \$1 each

• No \$25 + \$2 is the xpense and you get to keep the remain three dollars , each one gets \$1. so it adds up to \$30 again.

You can not add the tip to the 9*3 = \$27 as this \$27 means \$25 + \$2 tip so , all the ppl spent \$25/ 3 + \$2/3 and the remain \$3/3 is back in their pockets. sp \$10*3 = 30.

The question calculates wrongly and confuses.

• Tips given is 3*2 against discount of 5 \$. Hence (w)one(der) \$

• A *far* more interesting question is this: If each of you spent \$9, where did the \$2 for the tip come from in the first place? ☺
