brain teaser

Three men decided to split the cost of a hotel room. The hotel manager gave them a price of $30.

The men split the bill evenly, each paying $10, and went to their room. However, the hotel manager realized that it was a Wednesday night, which meant the hotel had a special: rooms were only $25. He had overcharged them $5!

He called the bellboy, gave him five one-dollar bills and told him to return it to the men.

When the bellboy explained the situation to the men, they were so pleased at the honesty of the establishment that they promptly tipped the bellboy $2 of the $5 he had returned and each kept $1 for himself.

So each of the three men ended up paying $9 (their original $10, minus $1 back) totalling $27, plus $2 for the bellboy makes $29.

Where did the extra dollar go?

How many Fs do you see in the text below?


FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE-

SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIF-

IC STUDY COMBINED WITH THE

EXPERIENCE OF YEARS.

How many did you count? 3?

Wrong, there were 6. Don't believe it?
Scroll back up and check. Or scroll down
for the solution...

Our brains are trained to overlook the word OF.

If you saw all 6 Fs right away, you're a genius.

Most people see only 3 Fs. Some people see 4.

... the riddle adds.. but you have to subtract it..

30-3 = 27 - 2 = 25.. subtracting 3 from five then adding only two doesn't 'add up' haha

For example do it the other way... subtract two and add 3? you gain a dollar... that'd be nice


The real riddle to me is.. why would 3 guys go to a place, share ONE room, that only costs $25 per night?
