guys out on a cheap stag week end.

They go to a cheap B@B.

The manager isnt there and the bell boy isnt sure how much the room is.

So, the 3 guys say "well, we will give you a tenner from each of us, and sort it later"

so, £10 from 3 people

£10

+£10

+£10 =

£30

The manager comes back and tells the bell boy it was only £25 and tells him to take the change back, and hands him £5.

Now, the bell boy was a little fed up cos he wasnt given a tip, and confused how to divide the £5 between 3.

So, he puts £2 as a tip in his pocket, and gives the guys £1 each back.

So, the guys pay £10 each, given £1 each back, So the price worked out at £9 each.

£9

+£9

+£9 = £27..... Right?

Then the bell boy pockets £2 making the total £29..........

Where did the other £1 go?
