Um..you do realize it is a 1912 test?
Did you fail the 8th grade because of a lack of reading comprehension?
Perhaps there's something you don't yet realize about Pike county Yelp. The thing is, it's STILL 1912 in Pike county. They didn't realize the Titanic sank that year until some of them made it to Lexington back in 1996 and saw the movie. LOL!!!

These exams are actually pretty difficult for many since they are focused on what was important to learn then.

Landlord kept 25$. Boy kept 2$. This gives the total spent by the 3 men. Which is 25$+2$=27$ for your 9$ cost per room and each man still had 1$ for a coke. Which is 3 men by 1$ for a total of 3$.
Add everything you have 30$ and all monies accounted for in this problem.
