# THE MISSING COIN

Sun 20 Jan, 2008 01:02 pm
three men go to a restaurant to have dinner. the owner of that restaurant comes up to the three men and offers then to eat as much food as they like for only 30 \$. the three men share the cost and agree to pay 10\$ each to the owner. when the owner goes back to his office, he realizes that today had a special and that the three man could eat as much as they liked for only 25\$. And so the honest owner gives 5 \$ to the server so he could give that many back to the men. The server didn't know how he could divide 5\$ into three equal parts. So the server decides to keep 2\$ for himself and gives 1\$ to each of the three men. the three man had initially paid 10\$ and now received 1\$ back as if they had only paid 9\$ each. 9\$ times 3 men equals 27\$, plus the 2 dollars that the sever kept equals 29\$. After all, where did that 1 missing dollar go???

The \$2 that the server kept is already included in the \$27 that the three men paid, so there's no reason to add another \$2 in order to account for what the server kept.
