25$ the final bill, 2 for recepcionist equals 27$, plus (1+1+1)$ in change total 30$ initially paid!

There is $35 dollars in this transaction. The Hotel has the original 30. Plus the two the Receptionist kept. That is $32. Each guy has the other $3.

They payed 9+9+9=27 for the room.

The room costs $25 and the receptionist keeps $2, that's 25+2=27.

So where is the extra dollar they asks for?

### Matthew

Because it's not +$2, it's -$2, since it's the other $1 we substracted, not added. $30-$1-$1-$1-$2=$25, the cost of the room.

Why is this a problem? It shouldn't add up to $30 when the price of the room was corrected. The only reason its 27 instead of 25 is cus of the 2 dollars taken by the lady, which when you take out of the equation it makes sense.

It's factually and logically incorrect...please stop posting things like this.

It's easy. It should be $27 - 2 = 25, not +2.

I've seen it so many times.

The $27 is the expenditure.

The $2 gain,

If you add them, one of them have to have a minus sign.

Its just a problem that says, I earn $100 and spend $50, OMG, thats $150!!! Only in a less easy to spot manner.
