You and two friends go to a restaurant. The bill is $30.00. Each of you pay $10.00. However, the owner turns out to be a mutual friend and refunds you $5.00. You give $2.00 to the waiter, and each get back $1.00.

The bill was $30.00. Each of you got a $1.00 back and $2.00 went to the waiter. So you paid a total of (10-1) x 3 = $27.00. Plus $2.00 to the waiter. $27.00 + $2.00 = $29.00. Why is there a $1.00 missing?
 
I remember this one
 
Total bill is 30 - 5 +2 = $27.
 
The amount given to waiter has already been paid by all three persons in the total bill of $27.
ie. 25 + 2 = $27.

uff ! why so many transactions D'oh  The friends had readily parted with $10.00 each to pay for the bill of $30.  If they got back $5 as unexpected refund they could have easily tipped $5 to the the waiter and walked off instead of trying to solve the mystery of a missing $1. Is it worth all the trouble?Confused
