I generally like puzzles…unless I can’t work them out and then they are the work of the devil! I can be just a tad OCD so when at 1am this morning a friend gave me a puzzle that I couldn’t work out I figured it may just be because I was a little sleepy. But no, this morning I’ve tried again and I still can’t work it out.
So…I am hoping someone reading this may know the answer. Here’s the conundrum:
3 men arrive at a hotel on a business trip. The hotel room cost £30 so they each pay £10 and go to their room. A little later the hotel realises they have overcharged the men and they send a porter to the room with £5 refund. Realising that he can’t split the £5 equally the porter pockets £2 and gives the men £3 back.
The room was £30, the porter kept £2 meaning the room cost £28 right? But, after each man received £1 back that means they paid £9 each totally £27. Where’s the missing pound?
I know there is a logical solution to this….but my brain isn’t working on finding it out just yet. Any suggestions?
