Message:  3 men go into a motel. The man behind the desk says the room is $30.00. Each man paid $10.00 and then went to the room. A     little while later the man behind the desk realized the room was only $25.00,the man behind the desk sent the bellboy up to the room with $5.00 to give back to the men. On the way the bellboy couldn't figure out how to split the money evenly, so he gave each man a dollar back and kept two dollars for himself. That means now each man paid $9.00. Well 3*9=27 and 27+the 2 dollars the bellboy had that makes a total of $29.00. Where is the extra dollar that makes the amount $30.00? HHHEEELLLPPP!!!!!!!!
