A bit of a mind bender...

    A bit of a mind bender...

    Discussion started by sneak - May 15, 2004

    (please bear in mind im using eglish £ here as it was how i was told).

    3 friends go to a restaurant for a meal. At the end, the waitress says the bill will be £30. So split between 3 ways, that means each person pays £10.

    The waitress goes to the till and lo and behold, theres been a mistake. the bill should have been £25. Being a sly chief, she takes £2 out of the £5 change and gives each customer £1. effectivley meaning that each customer paid £9 for their meal.

    Now, if 9 x 3 = 27
    + 2 (the money the waitress took)

    and you get £29.
    Where did the other pound go?

    no they all paid 10 dollars.
    it cost 25 dollars, she kept 2 dollars, and gave them 3 dollars.
    25+2+3=30
    30/3=10
    they all paid ten dollars.

    the busboy snagged the last dollar (pound?)


    I dunno, I can't figure this one out what not with inflation and the crazy exchange rates these days.

    I like to think it ended up in someones' soup

    that 9x3=27 shit is there to throw your mind off. just look at the real numbers. 30 to start, came to 25, 5 dollar change, she took 2, gave them 3, total is 30.
