I heard this one years ago and never could figure it out...

Three friends check in to a hotel, they are told that they must pay $10 each for the room.

So that is $30, the guys go up to the room and the owner thinks to himself because they are sharing he will give them some discount. So he calls the bell boy and says to him here is $5, take it to the 3 guys adn tell them I am giving them a discount for sharing a room.

The bell boy on the way up to the room realises that $5 is not going to share equally between 3 guys, so he decides to keep $2 for him self and then give them each $1 as the discount.

He gives them the money and the deal is done...

Now here comes the riddle

$10 each is $30

$1 given back to each guy means they each paid $9 bringing the total to $27

then the bell boy took $2, that makes the total $29, where the hell is the other $1

Dont drop me BOOKSIE land, give me a solution... lol
