...so what's the answer and yes, it might be years old but I've never seen it....

THE MISSING DOLLAR!

3 MEN GO INTO A MOTEL. 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 HIMSELF.

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.

WHERE IS THE OTHER DOLLAR?

No...the three paid 25 + 3 which is 28 divided by 3 is approx...$9.33 Always to do the math...and it will always determine the outcome...even between a ram drill and flamer...

This is very confusing but I have a moment of clarity and I will write now.

At the end of all the money transfers.

The owner has $25
The guys have $3
The bellboy has $2

sum it up and it is $30. The ridlle lies by saying $27 was paid by the 3 men when actually $25 was, $3 was given back and $2 for the bellboy and that should add up to $30.

What Matrix is saying is use:

[IMG]URL[/IMG]

However, it doesn't work in sigs on this old a version of UBB...so don't bother doing it.

Wow..... I this took me like 15 mins..... pretty confusing.
It's not 27+2, it's 27-2!!! We're not dealing with $30 anymore, it's 25 now. So the guy jipped them from 2 dollars that is theirs... which is why they paid more than 9 dollars.

Thank god I'm an engineer........
