Answer to Math Problem about Three Ladies and the $30 room (previous Posting)
Few have been able to provide the answer to the question, “Where is the missing dollar?”
The $2 the bellman put in his pocket is not part of 3 X $9. The $3 he kept in his pocket is part of that equation. The $2 is part of the equation, $2 plus the $3 the bellman gave the ladies, plus $25 equals $30.
