I read this riddle last week and it has been racking my brain since. I just can't seem to figure it out, see if you can...
Three people go to a restaurant and each buy a meal for $10. Together, they pay the waitress a total of $30.
The waitress goes to the boss and gives him the money ($30). The boss tells her that when three people order the same dish it is only $25. The boss gives the waitress $5 and tells her to give it back to the customers.
The waitress doesn’t know how to give back $5 to three people, but comes up with an idea. She keeps $2 in her own pocket and gives one dollar to each one of the three customers($3).
How much did each customer pay?
3 customers x $9 = $27
+ $2 in the waitress’s pocket
What happened to the last dollar???
