 solvers!  Lets see who can figure this one out first:
 
 Three guys go to a hotel, and get a room for $10 a piece, or a total of $30.
 They go up to their room, when the clerk realizes the room was only $25, not
 $30. So he gives $5 to the bellhop, and tells him to go rectify the matter.
 The bellhop then goes upstairs, and gives $1 to each guy, so they have now
 each paid $9 for the room, instead of $10. The Bellhop keeps $2 as a tip.
 Okay, you have 3 guys who each paid $9, for a total of $27, and $2 for the
 bellhop, which makes $29. 
 
 Where did the extra dollar go? >>
