Hi All, Anyone here know the answer of the folowing old puzzle. I could never know its answer. Three friends went to a hotel. The bill was 75 bucks .Each one contributed 25 bucks. The waiter took the bill to the cashier. The cashier was happy & decided to give them a discount of 5 bucks & asked the waiter to return them 5 bucks. Now the waiter was confused. How to distribute 5 bucks among 3 persons? He kept 2 bucks in his pocket & gave one buck to each one of the 3 persons. So initially each one had contributed 25 bucks. Now as they are given 1 buck back, their contribution reduces to 24 bucks. They all contributed 24 bucks--> that is 24x3=72 & 2 bucks are in the waiters pocket. The total becomes 74. But they had paid 75 bucks. Where is the remaining 1 buck?. Thanks a lot for answering !
