I have heard this before and if I remember correctly it is just one of them things that is mathematically impossible to solve.

Now must I remind you its friday, time to wind down ready for the weekend

Correct. the others are wrong.

Earth to stupid guy - hello!!!!

3 x 9 = £27. Bellboy nicks £2.

27 - 2 = £25.

Blokes pay £9 each, Bellendboy gets £2, hotel gets £25.

Fuck me, did you get caught out by the "Cool Cash" lottery ticket as well?

Such a nice chap

It's well known among mathematicians as an unsolved teaser expressed in $300 version although it has been simplified to a £30 version. ( with the likes of you in mind ) so put another way

(

**When followed in the way it is presented **the £1 is diffie)

Explain this

3 men give a cashier a £10 note each.

for an item they have gone 3rds on

The cashier then realises that the (said item) infact is only £25

So, he then takes the remaining £5 back to the 3 gents in £1 coins, which unfortunately can't be devided equally among 3 people.

He gives each man £1

then pockets £2

SO giving back £3, with £2 in his pocket making up the overpaid £5 Ok so far.

The three men have then paid £9 each, the cashier has £2

So, £9x3 men = £27 + the £2 in the cashiers pocket = £29 although they originally paid £30 and the cashier devided the overpaid £5

Where is the pound that makes the above £30 not £29???
