3 guys order a family size pizza and each one pays $10. Therefore, the total for the pizza is $30.

The waiter realizes that he overcharged them knowing that the pizza costs $25. He takes $5 out of the cash register, keeps $2 in his own pocket and returns $1 to

each of the 3 guys.

Now, knowing that each of the 3 guys effectively paid each $9 for their share of the pizza and that the waiter kept $2 in his pocket, where did the remaining $1 disappear.

The math is 3 x $9 = $27 (effective payment by the 3 customers) + the $2 the waiter put in his pocket when he returned the overcharge amount

Therefore $27 paid + $2 in the pocket = $29. However, the original amount paid was $30. What happened to the last $1?

@Stephie I didn't see other replies but the math doesn't lie

3 * ($10/person) = $30_{register}

= $25_{register} + $5_{refunded}

= $25_{register} + ($2_{pocket} + 3 * ($1/person))

3 * ($9/person) = $27

= $25_{register} + $2_{pocket}

3 * ($10/person) = $30_{register}

= $25_{register} + $5_{refunded}

= $25_{register} + ($2_{pocket} + 3 * ($1/person))

3 * ($9/person) = $27

= $25_{register} + $2_{pocket}

@BarbossasHusband there has been actually! A girl from the uk came to a work meeting and everyone was saying our accents sounded similar.. now when I hear an English accent my mind just associates it with her

If you could commit arson where would you commit arson at?

**simjks4**· 18-21New

@joyhasjoy1 wild question coming from a child but I don’t think I’d commit arson even if it was a legal option
