Test Your Smarts by Solving the Missing Dollar Riddle

July 28, 2015 1:47 pm

If you like challenging, mathematical puzzles, the Missing Dollar Riddle is for you. Using real life scenarios to test your reasoning skills, this fun puzzle may take you a while to work out. Grab a pen and paper and try to solve this tricky riddle!

The Missing Dollar Riddle begins when three guests check into a hotel room. The bill is $30, so each person pays $10. Later, the hotel clerk realizes that the bill should have only been $25, so he instructs the bellhop to return $5 to the guests. The bellhop realizes that he can’t split $5 between three people, so he sneakily decides to give each guest $1 and to keep the extra $2 for himself. Now the guests each paid $9, totaling $27. The bellhop has $2, which equals only $29, not the $30 they originally paid.

What happened to the extra $1? To see how your answer stacks up (or to check the solution if you’ve given up!), check out the correct answer here.
