Let's try again. Can math fags figure this out?

>3 guys walk into a hotel

>Ask the clerk for a room

>Clerk says that'll be $30

>They each pony up $10 and go to their room

>Have the bell hop bring our bags

>Clerk calls the bell hop

>Realizes the room is only $25

>Gives the bell hop $5 to give back to them

>On the way up the bell hop thinks these guys looked cheap and won't tip

>He gives them $3 back and pockets $2

>They each paid $10 and got $1 back, so they each paid $9

>9x3=$27

>The only money left unaccounted is the $2 in the bell hop's pocket

>27+2=$29

Where is the extra dollar?

I'll bump with girls til someone gets it.

I think you're missing the point.

the hotel has 25 bucks

each guy has a dollar

the bellhop has two

$30 paid-$5=$25+$3 from fuck head=$28. Fuckhead kept $2=$30

The $27 accounts for the bellhop, the refund was $3. No?

he gave them 3 dollerydoos so they payed 28 dollerydoos and 28 +2 is 30 you fuck

everyone paid

25/3 dollars and gave 2/3 dollars as tip which the guy kept

>>

>>595042782

you're doing the math wrong...

if they payed 27 dollars (3x9) and 25 went to the room and 2 dollars catched the asswhipe then it's all right because:

27 = 25+2

>>

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.

>>

>>595043704

10-1x3+2?

Girl 6? I lost count

>>

In case anybody is confused, this is a trick because of this line

>They each paid $10 and got $1 back, so they each paid $9

They didn't each pay $9 they each paid $9.33

>>

>>595044201

Put another way consider how the $30 breaks down:

$25 - room

$3 (3x $1) back to the men

$2 Bellboy

>>

>>595043778

Stupid bellhop

Also girl

>>

>>595042782

They paid $30, the were suppose to pay $25, $25+$2 = $27.

>>

There's actually $35 dollars in circulation, the original $30 the $2 the clerk pocketed and the $3 dollars given back. So they each still pay $10 but get $1 back so they technically shell out $27 dollars. Plus the two is $29. So it seems like it's messed up right? But that's because the clerk took the $3 so instead of it joining the circulation it's taken out so you subtract it instead of adding it, changing the $32 from +3 to -3 getting $29

>>

>>595042782

"so they each paid $9" false , they each paid 25/3.

>>

>>595042782

in the end,

the total was $27 -- the room (25) and the bellhop (2)

and each guy paid $9

27+2? That would mean we are counting the bellhop twice

(25+2) + 2

>>595043867

But who gets the excess dollar?

sorry had an autistic spurge and messed up my thinking on the end

>>

>>595043968

I want the extra dollar

Girl

>>

>>595042782

27 is the amount of money the men are out of pocket, 25 at the desk and 2 in the bell hop's pocket.

>>

>>595042782

It makes no sense to add the $27 with $2, as the $2 came out of the $27

>>

They each paid a fractional amount, but the problem only details the integers /thread

>>595042782

Cleverly worded, but still stale pasta.

>>595044289

this grill

who is she?

>DICKISBEDROCK

>>

>>595042782

The question "where is the extra dollar" actually makes no sense, and relies on the comparison between $30 at the start and the $29 at the end, which are not measures of the same thing.

The room was $25, the bellhop was $2, and that adds to $27. The guys each got a buck back, which makes it $30 all told.

The $29 at the end is subtracting the $3 from the $30, when it's actually included, and adding the $2 when it's also included. This gives you a $1 which is irrelevant to the situation.

>>595044770

>>595044052

Alright. So, with this information, I am somehow fucked

>>

its simple. they all paid $10 each. but the room was only $25. So the difference is $5

read carefully here:

(he gave them back 3)

so they all now have $28 in total

bellhop keeps $2

28+2=30 (the original amount out of pocket)

its worded completely wrong, Op doesn't understand simple math, clearly a nigger.

>>

>>595042782

>>595045391

She's a fucking angel that's who.

>>

>>595045837

but each paid 9 for the room, and 2 total for the bellhop

9*3 + 2 = 29

>>

>>595042782

The guys end up paying the hotel $27 because the bell hop pockets $2

>there was at no point any dollars being lost

>op is just retarded

>>

>>595046052

no they didn't the room cost 25 not 27

the 27 includes the bellhops 2

>>

the statement that everyone payed 9 dollars is what creates the problem

everyone payed 27/3 dollars for the room plus tip

and kept 1 (3/3) dollars

>The only money left unaccounted is the $2 in the bell hop's pocket

that line is bullshit because the 2 dollars is accounted for, the unnacounted money is the 3 the men have

You try and mislead with the 3*9 part of the riddle

>>

>>595044624

27+2?

Girl

>>

>>595046204

this so fucking hard

The men didn't pay $9 each "for the room". The $9x3 pays for the room AND the $2 the scumbag bellhop took. Since they each keep a dollar 27 + 3 = 30

>>

>>595044685

My brain is starting to hurt.

Girl

>>

>>595046556

that part is fine they did all pay 9, 25 for the hotel, 2 for the hop

Actually two of them would have paid $9.33 and the other one $9.34 so the other dollar is there but in cents which you did not include

>>595044770

Always back to the fucking bell hop

Girl

>>

Room fee - the amount to go back to the customers + the amount actually returned to the customers

30 - 5 + 3 = 28

_____________

3 __ =

9.33 per customer

28 + 2 = 30

>>

>>595042782

because it's 27 - 2 (the two he took) = 25, the total price of the room they paid.

You faggot, why are you adding?

Where is the clerks money then?

>>595047355

>>595047851

I have a 20 and a 10

I get 5 5s, and 5 1s

Possibly, somewhere around here, change your mind and ask for different change that still adds up to 30 to mess with them

I give 2 dollar tip

I have 4 5s and 8 1s -- 28

I originally handed over 30 dollars, and I have given a 2 dollar tip

I have given 32 dollars

What next?...

> so no dollars are missing

>i your story the bell hop gives each 3$ out of 5$ so he pays 4$ out of his own pocket

>>

>>595048605

The funny thing is you were there and then you made yourself look retarded

Room fee - Amount to go back + Amount that went back = 28

28 + Amount held by clerk = 30

9.33 * 3 loses a penny, an impossibility if they are paying in dollars

>>

I gotta eat something Brb

Girl

>>

the unaccounted money in the equation is the mens 3 dollars not the bellhops two, that's factored into the 27 for fuck sake the question lies you dumb fucks

>>

dumb fuck, 9x3 is 27. thats how much they paid. which accounts for 25$ for the room and 2$ the bellhop jacked. the other 3 dollars they got back.

>>

>>595048747

"I have given 32 dollars"

what if the tip was 5 dollars?

"I have given 35 dollars"

but you know, maybe that's a little excessive,

can I have 3 dollars back? I also would like these 2 5s to be 1s

So I'm going to give you 2 5s, and get 7 1s

OP halp

>>

>>595048986

Okay then faggot,

Room fee - the amount to go back to the customers + the amount actually returned to the customers

30 - 5 + 3 = 28

28 + 2 = 30

>>

The word play implies that 27 and 2 need to add to 30, when in fact, 25 and 2 need to add to 27. They did each pay 9 dollars, a total of 27$, 25 of which went to the hotel, and 2 of which went to the nigger bellboy

Now fuck off OP and stop posting girls

How is /b/ this stupid?

It's 9*3 = 27, but that's what they payed TO BOTH THE HOTEL AND THE CLERK

THEY HAVE THE OTHER 3 DOLLARS YOU DUMB FUCKS

>>

>>595050882

But you're still wrong, because you're answering the question as if it's 27+2

Which it isn't.

>>

>>595051265

how am I answering the question as if it's 27+2..?

>>

>>595050782

You're accounting for the other $5 twice.

The customers payed $30. It doesn't matter how they each paid for it, all that matters is that $30 was spent.

Clerk accidentally the cash, and send a bell hop with $5 for the customers.

Bell hop pockets $2 like a cunt, and returns $3 to the customers.

If you follow the chain of events, you come out with the equation (30 - 5) + 3 = 28

Obviously if we account for the $2 the bell hop stole, we come up with

---------->$30<----------

>>

Probably wrong, but its worth a shot

They tipped the bellboy the missing dollar

>>

>>595042782

because if the room costs 25 dollars and they each get $1 back, they didn't all spend $9 you fucking idiot

How do you convince the target that the above equation is relevant?

And how would you convince them to give you the extra dollar?

In the start 30 dollars is paid

5 dollar refund

but 2 dollars to the bellhop

>>

There is no extra dollar

They each paid $10, adding up to $30

The scumhop came back giving $3 to the guests, and keeping $2

$30-$5=$25

>>

The room cost the three 28 which is 9.333.. per man. Then the two dollars goes to the bellhop, thats .6666.... add them together = 30

>>

>>595051447

Room fee - the amount to go back + amount returned

30 - 5 + 3

Is wrong

Room fee - amount stolen - amount given back

30 - 2 - 3

Is correct

From there you have the right idea, but it's irrelevant

You're rephrasing OPs question, when the point of the riddle is it's phrased wrong.

>>

>>595042782

25+2=30-3

>>

>>595042782

You're all fucking retarded. They paid 30. Bellhop took 2. That = 28 total paid for room, plus 2 for bellhop. Bellhop then returns 3. 28-3 = 25. 25 is the price of the room, plus the 2 in the bellhop's pocket.

The entire last section is bullshit intended to confuse the plebs. Stop being retarded, if this stumps you then you're either too tired, too stupid, or too stoned. Go to bed.

>>595051985

So, in the end,

the hotel would know that the expense is 25 dollars,

the 3 guys would think the expense was dropped to 27 rather than 30,

I believe you would only be able to trick the bellhop into giving anyone an extra dollar

>>

>>595042782

/b/ is autism.

27 is everything on the hotel side, not the guest's side.

So 27 is 25 for hotel plus 2 tip because this is what the guys in total paid for with their 9 a piece.

The other 3 are in their hands.

Brilliant!

sauce?

>>595051722

What happens is 3 people give a clerk 25 dollars and a bell hop 2

>>

>>595045068

Yes, so 27+2=29

Girl

>>

>>595052988

We're not trying to figure out how to get $30 into the hands of the hotel, we're trying to figure out where that $1 'vanished' to. Even with your equation, 25 + 2 = 27, we can account for the other $3 that was transferred, making it, still, $30.

>>

>>595042782

The $9 they each pay doesn't go toward the mistaken $30 cost for the room. It goes toward the actual cost for the room, which is $25, plus the $2 "tip" for the bellhop, so $27 in total.

$9 + $9 + $9 = $25 + $2

(Paid by guys) = (Room cost) + (Tip)

>>595045144

But 9x3=27

I want this fucking dollar

Girl

>>

Plz tell me this is James or Ben lol

>>

Each guy paid 25/3, with a remainder of 5. which is 8.333333, if they each got a dollar back it would be 9.333333 *3 = 28+2= 30... jackasses.

>>

>>595042782

it doesn't fucking matter

they each paid 10

they only got back 1 each

this isn't a matter of 9x3

but a matter of 10x3-5

2 of the 5 go back to the bell fag

and 3 of the 5 split evenly to the 3 guys

x=1 clerk

y=1 guy

z=1 bell hop

3y($10)=x

x($30)-$25=z

z($5)-$2=3y

x=$25

3y=$3

z=$2

OP's equation just isn't valid

>>

>>595055082

Dude, you answered the question

27 = 9 dollars each

They didn't lose anything

They paid the hotel 25, the hop 2

In this scenario they have paid 3 LESS THAN THEY WOULD HAVE IF IT HAD BEEN 30

it's A RIDDLE.

No money vanishes

>>

>>595042782

OP are you in my math class? At a certain community college with a certain white male teacher who like to start the class with a riddle?

>>

>>595055341

Except they didn't pay 10x3

They paid 9 each

The riddle is the original scenario in which they had to pay 30 quid stops existing, what happens is they pay 27, and OP implies that the bell hop has 4 dollars, asking you where the "missing dollar" went

What happened is OP ADDED 2 dollars

>>

>>595042782

All the people that cant solve a simple fucking equation.

>all autistics

You pay 3x10

You get back 3x1

The faggot keeps 1X2

30 - 3 - 2 = 25

25 = 25

25 = Price of the room

You're all fucking retarded.

>>

>>595055341

this

>>

>>595055770

It's not a fucking equation, it's a riddle

OP is imlpying they paid 30 and a dollar vanished

They paid 27 and OP stated that the bell hop has FOUR dollars

There's a jew crying somewhere in the world for 1$

>>595042782

but the room didn't cost $30. the room cost $25.

$10 * 3 = $30

Give $1 back to the guys, they have now paid $27 for a $25 room.

The bellhop is a nigger and stole $2.

This isn't fucking rocket science. But I am a rocket scientist so...

>>

>>595055477

No but dubs demand that I tell you my Trig teacher told us this.

Girl

>>

>>595056513

This is exactly the point

You paid 32, got 3 back, that's 29. you paid 27 and left a 2 dollar tip, that's 29

There is no missing dollar, you paid 27 and 2 respectively.

>>

>>595056652

I see there is at least somebody who know how to solve a simple equation.

>>

TD;DR FOR THE RIDDLE

The trick is that the original pool of money from the men is $30. Once they are each handed back $1 each, the pool in question is now $27, and no longer $30. This is the bait and switch though, and the technical answer is that the "mystery" dollar went back into the 3 men's pockets at $.33 cent each.

>>

>>595056559

It's literally a riddle with an answer you can google dumb fuck

They paid the hotel 27 and the bell hop 2, OP asks where A NONEXISTANT missing dollar is

>>

>>595057102

There are not any non-existant dollars you fuckdumb autist

>>

>>595056703

each guy paid ten: 3x10 = 30

there was a mistake and the room only cost 25.

Each guy should get back $1.66

.66*3 =2.

The reason OP's riddle is fucked is because:

Each person should get back $1.66 not $1

right op?

>>

>>595057229

Dude, do you know what a riddle is?

How much did they pay? That's right, 27. What does OP say they pay? That's right, 29. What magical 30 dollars is he subtracting it from? That's fucking right, the 30 dollars that turned out to be 25 (And 2 for the bell hop, making it 27, not 30)

>>

>>595057229

I want the fucking missing dollar

Girl

>>

>>595056703

Alright, it cuz I just came from school and out prof told it to us.

>>

>>595057428

Wrong.

They didn't pay 30 at all, they paid 27

It's a riddle, not a math equation.

>>

>>595057625

His name wasn't Blair E. Caboot, was it?

Girl

>>

>>595045960

Expensive hotel room for 1914. Though possible, I suppose.

>>

if they each paid 27 and you think of that as part of their 30, there's 3 left over not being paid that they have. which shows 30 dollars in total.

people are pretty fuckin wrong because their initial loss was 30, then the 5 change, so current amount of money paid was 25. then, the sneaky jew comes in and takes their 2 dollars, so them paying 27 is pretty right. but its the 3 other dollars we need to look at not the fuckin 2

>>

>>

>>595057672

Yes, they paid 27 and the bell hop has 2 so where's the dollar?

Girl

>>

clerk and bellhop have $27

guys give bellnigger $2 tip( because bellnigger POCKETED the $2, hence 25 + 2 )

Guys have the extra dollar

>>

>>595058215

Exactly, they paid 25 and the bell hop has 2

>>

>>595057672

No, they had 30 and they paid 28 nigger

>>

>>595057947

Was there Vegas in 1914?

Girl

>>

>>595058289

Exactly.

That's the end of the riddle

Clerk has 25, bellhop has 2, the missing 3 is split evenly between the guys

>>

>>595057922

Naw Prof. Cambell idk first name

>>

>>595056513

They originally paid 30

Then, they paid 27 and there's 3 unaccounted for

>>

>>595058215

There is no "extra dollar". 30 paid - 3 given back = 27 dollars paid for the room. But the room cost $25 dollars, which they got burned for...

the extra THREE dollars are split evenly between the three men

>>

>>595058522

28+3? Then they made a dollar!

Girl

>>

No it came out wrong.

I mean that the +2 in (27+2=29) is from the guys giving an actual tip to the bellboy

So, $3 that the guys got back - $2 that the guys gave to bellhop as legitimate tip = $1 left to the guys.

>>

>>595058868

Wait but the bell hop had 2 dollars...

Girl

they didn't pay 9 dollars each for the room because the room is only 25

Girl

>>595044008

Is the girl 5?

>>595042782

I like this riddle. The last few lines are what is meant to confuse the audience:

>9x3=$27

>The only money left unaccounted is the $2 in the bell hop's pocket

>27+2=$29

This story transforms from an equation to a riddle at this second line, about the $2 in the bellhop's pocket. It is meant to throw the listener off. As an equation, this story should end at "9x3=27" because that is all the math that matters.

>9x3=27

>(10-1)x3=27

>(10-1)+(10-1)+(10-1)=25+2

This equation could be read:

>Three guys each paid ten and were each refunded one. The hotel kept 25 and the bell hop kept 2.

Which is the entirety of the riddle. The "missing dollar" is actually "two extra dollars" where the story goes from math to semantics.

Dig it. I'll remember this for the future.

>>

>>595060084

No but maybe she has the dollar.

Girl

>>595060527

See? And then you can trick people out of a dollar.

Girl

>>595042782

Just saying that this was a decent puzzle. I'm a very educated math teacher and I had to ponder this for a moment before I saw the flaw.

>>

I came to this thread for the math, but stayed for the girls.

>>

This is a better thread than I'd hoped. Btw I'm pretty stoned guise.

Girl

>>

>>595042782

Mathfag here. This type of trick would take too long to fully explain (and I don't do that shit for free anyways) but I will give you the crux of the problem.

The problem is that while 30 is divisible by 3, 25 is not. If it were 24 a night instead you get

10x3 = 30

30-6 = 24

6/3 = 2

10-2 = 8

8x3 = 24

30-24= 6

Everything works, bellhop lies and says room is 27 so he can pocket 3 bucks

9x3 = 27

27+3 = 30

No missing dollar. So again, the problem is that it goes from being divisible by 3 to not being divisible by 3. There's the trick.

>>

they didn't each pay 9 they paid 10. there's no 'missing dollar'. After the refund, the guys come up 2 dollars short of 30. 25 + 3 (the refund) = 28

OP is a retard.

>>

>>595061307

>Clerk says that'll be $30

>They each pony up $10 and go to their room

>Have the bell hop bring our bags

>Clerk calls the bell hop

>Realizes the room is only $25

>Gives the bell hop $5 to give back to them

>On the way up the bell hop thinks these guys looked cheap and won't tip

>He gives them $3 back and pockets $2

Up to this point. 30 dollar room. 5 dollar return. Split into 2 dollars. and 3 dollars. The 3 dollars goes to the room. Fuck counting the 3 faggots who room together. That's 28 dollars we have accounted for. Do not think about how much spent on the room. Think about what we have accounted for. 30-5=25 .... The five in transit:

So now 25 is with the clerk.

5 with the bellhop.

5-2=3.... 3 dollars is headed back to the room.

It makes it there. 3 dollars in the room with the guys sucking and blowing each other. 25 with the balding clerk who plans to kill himself tonight. 2 with the bellhop who is as worthless as most of you.

30 dollars total. The men spent 10 dollars each on a room. The issue is when it's $25... They spent ~ $8.33 on the room. The 5 dollars comes back, but only 3 of the 5 makes it to them. In their minds, they split the 3 dollars as that is even. So in their minds 9 dollars each. That's distributing the money differently, so they imagine the room was 27 at a glance. But the motherfucking fact is that the room was 25, and they were jipped. Not something to overthink. 30-5. 25. They got 3 dollars back. 28. The bellhop has the other 2. 30.

I don't care what anyone says. The guys in the room are dumb to split the money evenly like that but that's because they don't KNOW that the room was 25. They think it was 27. That's fucking it. It's their perspective vs the whole picture... Come on people.

>>595062615

okay explain this faggots:

> so 1 guy wants to rent a hotel room.

> 10 dollar, guy puts it on the counter

> the clerk tells the bell hop to show the guy the room

> guy goes upstairs with the bell hop

> clerk grabs the money and runs to his neighbour the butcher and pays off his debt of 10 $

> butcher takes the 10$ and runs to his neighbour the baker and pays of his 10 $ debt

> the baker on his turn takes the 10$ and run to the owner of the supermarket to pay off his debt

> the supermarket owner takes the 10$ and runs to the hotel clerk to pay off his debt

> the guy who wanted a hotel room doesn't like the room and says he doesn't want to rent it anymore

> goes downstairs and takes his 10$

> everyone paid off his debt and nothing changed for the guy because he got his 10 $

>>

>>595063335

If you are two people in that scenario do you get $20?

Girl

>>

>>595063335

OR IF YOU'RE 2 PEOPLE THEN YOU GET $20 AND YOU PAY OFF $20 DO YOU GET $40

Girl

>>

>>595063313

Yes. And all the girls are in the hotel. A revolving door thing. Turns into Taken, once the 3 cockblowers realize they've been jipped once they get the adjusted bill sent up later.

They are hunting for the bellboiii and keep passing every Girl in the hallway.

They keep leaving one room. My room. I'm spotted occassionally but often obscured by a spread ass and a bobbing head of hair. One of the girls. Another math problem floats around the hotel regarding an odd number of girls and rounding.

this is how banks work. and of course they are fucking rich. just shifting around money they don't have. and they ask interest over it. so they even get richer. with money that doesn't even excist.

>>

>>595042782

Really, they only paid 8.33 cents each since they got a 1 dollar refund and the faggot took 2 bucks total from them. Which means he took 66 cents per person. If you add the total they paid each, it would be 25 dollars. The refund of 3 gets added to that. Then the 66 cents per person gets put into the bell hops pocket, which would total 2 dollars

Simple math fucktard

Good question... By the way, your taste in sluts and naked bitches is top notch 10/10 quality. I unfortunately end up mindlessly saving whatever comes my way. My PC is a porn addicts labyrinth, burying most of my software engineer work under countless images of low to high quality sluttage. I feel like anything I do put in my works production environment from home is covered in some kind of.. mental... dirtiness.. Like pulling something out of a pile of jizz and trying to wipe it off, then putting it alongside cleaner things...

The autists could be other hotel members, most too busy being retarded to be anything other than background noise to the film. Some would be those truly concerned for their dick-loving brethren, so they attempt to solve the issue but go completely off track and end up fucking up simple math before vomiting up their Spaghettios all over their sweatpants and Velcro shoes, and waddling back to their hotel to cry into a game of Sonic their parents let them bring.

You are there too. Plot twist is you made the (fucc)bellboi steal the 2 dollars for you, and you had his meth-addled ass trade them to you in return for THREE dollars, because those two are both GEM 1957 B $1 DOLLAR MISMATCHED S/N 370/470 SILVER CERTIFICATE ERROR NOTES. Worth about half a grand each. You join me in the room after i've filled most girls with my seed and you'd taken half for yourself IN YOUR OWN ROOM because we're not the 3 fucklords who spend paltry money to split ONE room together.... We order up some coke snort it, and party while the 3 circle jerkers and the autists make a mess of the rest of the hotel.

>>

>>595042782

25 isn't divisible by 3 you fag, at least not in whole numbers.

3 goes into 24 and 27, not 25.

They paid 25 for the room so each of them paid 8 and 1/3 dollars for that room.

The extra five went to the bell hop, who gave each man 1 dollar and pocketed 2.

(8 and 1/3)3 + (3+2) = 30

>>595042782

There's still a dollar that I can have somewhere.

Girl

>>

>>595068656

That part is human engineering.

Angry customer, angry until convincing the balding, suicidal clerk of the wrongdoing. Get returns on the dollar that doesn't exist after barraging him with numbers, just like the shortchange tricks. Except obviously the money would be higher. That's a decent scam.

Easier done in the digital era. Months back? Amazon card with a low value attached to it. Use it for services worth way over the value, like servers, etc. Authorizes, and said digital services work before anything realizes it wasn't the needed amount.

Get too hot with it and oopsy. But tiny shit like that is negligible at best.

I remember this from junior high. There is no money unaccounted for. The question is misleading.

$3 accounts for the difference between $30 (original bill) and $27 (new bill).

$2 accounts for the difference between $25 (what should've been the bill) and $27 (bill paid).

The story mixes up these categories.
