Three men go on a business trip. They have to spend one night on the road at a motel. They decide to share a room - they just need some sleep and a shower. The manager tell them it will be 30 dollars for the three of them for one room for night. They each pay their share of ten dollars, get their keys and go to their room.

The manager looks at the register and sees that the men work for a business he has a deal with. He gives five dollars to his assistant to take back to the men.

When the assistant tells one of the men, the business man takes three dollars and tells the assistant to keep two dollars for a tip.

Each business man initially paid ten dollars for their share of the room cost. They each received a dollar back making their individual share nine dollars: 3 x 9 = 27 dollars. The assistant kept two dollars. 27 + 2 = 29 dollars.

What happened to the other dollar?

If each business man's individual share is $9 totaling $27, why does the manager only have $25 in the till?

The total amt spent was $27.00 (25.00 for the room and 2.00 tip),  then they each got back 1.00, (1 x 3 = 3), 25 + 2 + 3 = 30.  or their share was 8.33 for two of them and 8.34 for the 3rd guy and .67for 2 and .66 for 1 for the tip, also equaling 27.00 total and 1.00 given back to each of them again equaling 30.00 and no descrepancy.

There is no missing dollar and there is only 25.00 in the till, because the assistant has the other 2.00.  

Using a play on words to misrepresent how the money was used does not make it true.

I don't know what substance you have been "hitting" but your participation in this thread proves your intents.

If you don't care to discuss things that obviously interest quite a few folks here... just go do something else.

Don't bother us with your petty crap.

:D

Sorry i hit another nerve.

P.S. I am discussing it. Trek is what it is, and always has been. Trying dissect and find fault with something that doesn't even exist is an exercise in idiocy.

P.P.S. This is a free message board, i can chime in on what i like.

Wrong again.


YOU were the one that said " look at my sig" which was a non sequitor (sp) from the get go.

If you don't care for the topic, why grace it with your presence??? Go do something you DO care about.... don't hate on others for wanting to discuss Star Trek.

:eyesroll:

What did i start? Did i personally insult you? No. Go pound sand.

If I wanna tell people to get a life, that is my right. If you dont like it, ignore me, it's surly no skin off my back.

Like I said.. the fact that you want to sit around be in the middle of what you seem to dislike oh so much makes you a hypocrite.

Why not go discuss something else since you find this do disdainful??

Quit sullying up the place with your hypocrisy.

If you don't like the topic, go find or make your own. Stop whining in this one.

hey genius, in case you haven't noticed, im involved in about 5 or 6 threads at the moment.


And for the record, the only one whining is you. I only made a comment, you're the one who's panties are in a bunch.
