[FONT="]3 MEN GO INTO A MOTEL, ASKING FOR A ROOM, THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK SAID THE ROOM IS $30, SO EACH MAN PAID $10 AND WENT TO THE ROOM. 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 HIM SELF. 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. SO, WHERE IS THE OTHER DOLLAR?? [/FONT]

Your math is wrong.. they paid 30.00, got a refund of 5.00 and the bellboy kept 2.00 so they actually paid 28.00 for the room. Old riddle by the way... older than me and I'm no spring chicken.

The bellboy went on BHW, stopped posting useless things, didn't type in CAPS and then read the Blackhat SEO forum and made 1 million dollars. The end.

My friend, i posted this because i like it and want to share it with you! This is for a little break and i posted in the lounge! These post is in caps, because i copied it from an email where it is in caps. I've been reading bhw for a long time and yes, i make GOOD money! The end, too.

That's like what is 2+6/2 ? As reinie said, all about order of operations. Most read it as 2+6 = 8 / 2 = 4. It's actually 6/2 = 3 + 2 = 5.
