    I need this solved it driving me crazy

    WHATS THE ANSWER TO THIS ONE? !
    This will Mess With Your Head.
    3 MEN GOINTO A MOTEL.
    THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK SAID THE ROOM IS $30,
    SO EACH MAN
    PAID $10 AND WENT TO THE ROOM.A WHILE LATER THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK
    REALIZED THE ROOM WAS ONLY $25, SO HE SENT THE BELLBOY TO THE 3 GUYS'
    ROOM WITH $5. ON THE WAY, THE BELLBOY COULDN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO SPLIT
    $5 EVENLYBETWEEN 3 MEN, SO HE GAVE EACH MAN A $1 AND KEPT THE OTHER $2
    FOR HIMSELF.
    THIS MEANT THAT THE 3 MEN EACH PAID $9 FOR THE ROOM, WHICH
    IS A TOTAL OF $27. ADD THE $2 THAT THE BELLBOY KEPT = $29.WHERE IS THE
    OTHER DOLLAR?

    Simple, the bell boy paid them in Canadian $.

    It's a logic trick, but our mind tries to solve it as a math problem. The trick is to subtract instead of add. Think of it like this....

    $30 paid to the hotel - $3 refunded to the men = $27 - $2 kept by bellboy (call it a tip) = $25 (the actual price of the room.)
