Three friends went to a restaurant.
The bill was $75
Each one contributed $25
The waiter took the bill to the cashier. The cashier was happy & decided to give them a discount of $5 and asked the waiter to return them.
Now the waiter was confused. How to distribute $5 among 3 persons?
He kept $2 in his pocket and gave one dollar to each one of the 3 persons.
So initially each one had contributed $25. Now they have been given $1 back, their contribution reduces to $24.
They all contributed $24.
That is $24×3= $72 and the $2 is in the waiters pocket.
The total becomes $74. But they had paid $75.
Where did the $1 go??
