Re: something that wrecked my day
You are adding and subtracting the wrong numbers at the wrong points.
So, they technically pay 27 dollars (3 guys x $9), but because the bellhop took 2 of those dollars, the right amount of 25 makes it to the hotel, and the guys keep their 3 dollars, the remainder of what they paid, even though they were still supposed to pay less...
So they pay 30 at first, the hotel give them five back, so the hotel only has 25, while 3 goes back to the guys and 2 goes to the bellhop, making 30.
Here is a chart so it is easier (yea, I was bored and have no life).
