Three men stroll into a restaurant and share a $30 meal. After paying for the meal, the owner of the restaurant realizes the waiter overcharged the men, and orders the waiter to return $5 back to the men. Not knowing how to divide the money the waiter decides to keep $2 and give each of the men $1 back. So each man ended up paying $9 ($10-$1), the waiter kept $2. So thats $9+$9+$9+$2 = $29. Where did the last dollar end up?
How much money did the restaurant take? How much did the waiter take? How much did the men take?
The math at the end of the question makes you add up numbers wrong
The Men started with $30
They were returned $1 each so they payed $27.
The restaurant took $25
The waiter took the last $2
$30-$3 = $27 ( $25 to restaurant, $2 to the waiter)
