Three people check into a hotel. They pay \$30 to the manager and go to their room. The manager finds out that the room rate is \$25 and gives the bellboy \$5 to return to the guests. On the way to the room the bellboy reasons that \$5 would be difficult to split among three people so he pockets \$2 and gives \$1 to each person. Now each person paid \$10 and got back \$1. So they paid \$9 each, totaling \$27. The bellboy has another \$2, adding up to \$29.
Where is the remaining dollar?

Mr. X, I have a better question for you.
A man was going to bleach his socks because they had gotten muddy the day before. As he was pouring the bleach into the washing machine, he spilled some on the floor. He got some cleaning fluid and mopped it up with a rag. Minutes later he was dead. What killed him?

Everybody should know this.

Answer:When you mix bleach and ammonia [found in most cleaning products] it creates a deadly gas that can kill.

There is no missing dollar. The men spent \$27. Of which \$25 went on the room and \$2 went to the light fingered bell boy. You can not add the \$2 the bellboy has to the \$27 the men spent as this \$2 actually comes out of the \$27 the men spent, the other \$25 going on the room.

Put another way consider how the \$30 breaks down:
Â•\$25 - room
Â•\$3 (3x \$1) back to the men
Â•\$2 Bellboy
equals \$30.00

Actually the "Don" figured it out for me while at Chilis last night. After all he is a math wiz.

If they paid 25 didn't each guy spend 8.33 so if u multiply by 3 it's 25. Then the bell boy kept 2 so it's 27 plus the 3 that went back to the guys is 30.

No sir.
If you multiply 8.33 x 3, it = to 24.99 + 2 = 26.99 + 3 = 29.99
You rounded off the 24.99 to 25. Doesn't work that way. The "Don" gave us the answer dude.

It's actually 8.33333333 I just didn't want to put all the 3's.

It doesn't matter how many 3's you have, it still adds up to 30. Let me give you another riddle that's not so hard. JUANCHO!

There was this competition where the contestants had to hold 'something'. At the end of the event, the winner was a person who was physically disabled (he had no hands nor any feet)! What was that 'something'?

LION!!
Middle of a pig = I
The hind of a Buffalo = O
The tail of a Dragon = N

Is the answer correct? Again the "Don" figured it out.

Come on dude! What do you mean just as easy? Your first answer is wrong. Lol! Go back to the riddle and read it again. Then read the answer and tell me if it makes sense. Ask the "Don".
