Correct! Your turn Bro!Deceptive wording, wrong equation.
It doesn't mean that since they each got a dollar back that they paid $9 each for the room.
It is not 27 dollars for the night, it is still $25 ($30- $5= $25) divided among 3 friends, so that means, ($25/ 3) $8.333333 each. But since that sneaky bellhop got $2, then that means they paid $28 for the room (again not $27). Which is ($28/ 3) = 9.3333333 each, not $9 The .3333333, which multiplied by 3 makes $2, was stolen by the bellhop
....The friends pitched in for the room and the 2- dollar tip for the bellhop. No dollar lost, just logic so as not to deal with decimals...
I wonder what the bellboy said...
Correct! Your turn Bro!
Why does everybody here think I'm a boy!:tantrum1:

Three friends check into a motel for the night and the clerk tells them the bill is $30, payable in advance. So, they each pay the clerk $10 and go to their room. A few minutes later, the clerk realizes he has made an error and overcharged the trio by $5. He asks the bellhop to return $5 to the 3 friends who had just checked in. The bellhop sees this as an opportunity to make $2 as he reasons that the three friends would have a tough time dividing $5 evenly among them; so he decides to tell them that the clerk made a mistake of only $3, giving a dollar back to each of the friends. He pockets the leftover $2 and goes home for the day! Now, each of the three friends gets a dollar back, thus they each paid $9 for the room which is a total of $27 for the night. We know the bellhop pocketed $2 and adding that to the $27, you get $29, not $30 which was originally spent. Where did the other dollar go????
