Reminds me of the ‘Missing Dollar’

Three men go to stay at a motel, and the man at the desk charges them \$30.00 for a room. They split the cost ten dollars each. Later the manager tells the desk man that he overcharged the men, that the actual cost should have been \$25.00. The manager gives the bellboy \$5.00 and tells him to give it to the men.

The bellboy, however, decides to cheat the men and pockets \$2.00, giving each of the men only one dollar.

Now each man has paid \$9.00 to stay in the room and 3 x \$9.00 = \$27.00. The bellboy has pocketed \$2.00. \$27.00 + \$2.00 = \$29.00 - so where is the missing \$1.00?

“What are numbers?”
“How is math?”

That. Is. Awesome.

I particularly like the first comment:

Good one… Figured it out eventually… In total they paid \$27, of which the bellboy has \$2 and the manager has \$25, and each man has \$1. That accounts for all \$30… \$2 + \$25 + \$1 + \$1 + \$1…

actually, 25\$ is 8.33 \$ each, plus one each so 9.33 each (periodical) so the total is 28, plus 2 for the crooked bellboy. The 30\$ is fully accounted for.

Yes, the equation in the last sentence is incorrect, but worded in a way that sounds valid. Much like the 2 triangles appear equal in size/shape, but are not, and this discrepancy accounts for the extra square.

And with this trick you can also have infinite chocolate
