Exclamation Interesting question




This is very interesting question,try to figure out answer.

Three Ladies went to a hotel to share a room.

The clerk asked for $300.

Each Lady paid $100, making up the $300.

The hotelkeeper then decided to allow a discount for the day, charging only $250 for the room.

He told the clerk to return $50 to the three Ladies.

The clerk pocketed $20 for himself. He gave the remaining $30 back to the three Ladies.

Each Lady took back $10. Therefore, each Lady paid 100 - 10 = $90 to the hotel.

$90 x 3 = $270 + the clerk's $20 = $290.

Question: Where has the remaining $10 gone?

There is widespread interest in this question posted by a university in N.Z.

Many people are still trying to work out an answer.

Re: Interesting question

Its been answered several times.

You don't add $270 + $20....but subtract $270-$20 = $250

Because the ladies paid $270....out of which $250 went to the hotel and $20 went to the clerk.

Your answer is more interesting than question.
but
question still remains & need to be replied simply..to understand.

Question: Where has the remaining $10 gone?

I guess the answer given by Kalisaand pai may be hard to understand if you have failed at kindergarten and then stopped studying further.

If you ask where are the $300 then it can be explained as $250 to the hotel $30 back to customers ($10 each ) and $20 to the chor.

250+30+20=300
