Splash du Jour: Friday
Today’s Splash du Jour is in the form of a Quiz.
Trust me. This is totally neat! Cool, even!
You might be able to figure this out if you read very carefully.
The Missing Dollar.
Three men went to a motel.
The motel manager said a room cost $30, so each man put up $10 and went to their room.
A little while later the manager realized the room was only $25, so he sent the bellhop back to the three guys' room with $5.
On the way to the room the bellhop couldn't figure out how to split the $5 between the 3 men, so he gave each one of them $1 and he kept the other $2. This meant that the 3 men paid $9 each for the room for a total of $27.
Add the $2 that the bellhop kept = $29.
Where did the other dollar go?
Now… → Want the answer because you are so mathematically challenged that you cannot figure it out for yourself?
Yeah…. me too!
Have a great Friday!
