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????

It didn't go anywhere. Look.
$30 / 3 = $10.
$30 - 5 = $25.
This means they should have payed $8.33 each.

Anyway, back to the $25.
The Bellhop gives them $1 each. $1 x 3 = $3.
25 + 3 = 28.
Then, the $2 for himself is: $28 + $2 = $30.

It's a sort of trick, because they should have payed $8.33 each. The dollar they receive strangely adds to that amount, making $9.33 each, not $9. Now, $9.33 x 3 = $27.99. That is rounded to $28. The other $2 went to the Bellhop.
