three guys book into a hotel,
they each pay 10,
they go to their room where they find no heating and no hot water,
they call the manager who says he will send the porter up wi
some of their money back,
the manager gives the porter a fiver to split between them but halfway
upstairs he pockets 2 and arrives at the room and returns 1 each
to the 3 guys who then had paid 9 each for the room.

this means they paid 27 and the porter pocketed 2 which comes to 29

where did the other pound go :confused::confused:

5 divided by three is 1.66 that's what they should have got from porter with 2 pence to charity simple maths.

Manager gets 25 for the room. each guy gets 1 back (3) and porter gets 2.
25+3+2=30
..............phew, glad I sorted that out in my heid or I woulda been up a' night thinking aboot it!:rolleyes:

Your way;
They've paid 9 each (27)
Manager gets 25 for the room
Porter gets 2
25+2=27.

............mow I'm getting antae it,

If the manager had gave the porter 7 to split between them and he pocketed 4 giving them 1 each, they'da payed 9 each for the room (27) and the porter gets 4.
27+4=31

.....and then, aw forget it my heids sare! :confused:
