A while later the man behind the desk realized the room was only $25 so he sent the bellboy to the 3 guys' room with $5...

On the way the bellboy couldn't figure out how to split $5 evenly between 3 men, so he gave each man a $1 and kept the other $2 for himself...

This meant that the 3 men each paid $9 for the room, which is a total of $27 add the $2 that the bellboy kept = $29. Where is the other dollar? ... :)

No Cheating Now! ... I'm sure there's some Free Prize GiveAway(s) Somewhere in the Back Room of the SowPub {{Archives}} or with One of those Sponsors/Advertisers...

That's What Dien... Gordon and company! ... Need to Throw-in and Together one of these Days... Once in Awhile...

A Really [Cool] SowPubs Entrepreneurial series of Contests, misc. Sponsorship offers & ideas...

Might Help ''Spice'' up a little more Participation on & throughout SowPubs, Maybe More of those Viral Buzz and Media related Google Bots!... Hanging around with the Sharing of more Bucks, Monies in Monetizing those Never-ending Opportunities n' Possibilities... ;)

Just some Usual Food for thoughts in Reading & Digging, Playing around a little...

Phil,

I use that exact puzzle on my site: www.senior2senior.org. Anyone solving the puzzle wins a Senior Pride car magnet. Since I know the answer I'll refrain from spelling it out except to say if you can add there ain't no stinkin left over dollar.

BTW, you should see some of the answers I get. Hilarious...
