Mr. Alice:

This puzzle has been driving me crazy. So there are three guys in a hotel and they order a pizza. It costs \$30. Each guy chips in \$10. But when the pizza delivery person gets back to the pizza place with the \$30, it turns out the pizza really only costs \$25. So he goes back to the guys to return their change, pockets \$2 since they didn't tip him, leaving \$1 for each of the men. That means each guy paid \$9, plus the tip, that's only \$29. Where is the other dollar? Pleeeeeeez answer this.

Get three of these a year. Homework assignment? That's why I waited until summer to answer. The trick is in how the question is worded. Each man paid \$9, but that already includes each man's share of the tip. What you need to do is add the \$3 change to the \$9 x 3, and waaah laaah, you get \$27 + \$3 = \$30, everybody's happy. Except the guys who got Fs on their homework, I guess.
