# Where is the missing one dollar \$, I betcha!! ?

You went to a restaurant with two friends to eat. The bill came was \$75. So you decided to contribute equally for bill amount and paid \$25 each.

the waiter came back and returned \$5 as the owner gave discount. You decided to give \$2 to waiter for his honesty. And shared rest of the three dollars each. So final amount each three of you paid is \$24.

Now when you get back home and calculated then one dollar was missing.
Finally paid 24+24+24 = 72
Waiter tip \$2 so 72+2 = 74
Initially paid \$75 - finally paid \$74 = \$1

Where is the missing dollar gone?

Hi gagers, where are you. Can't you solve this mystery... Lol. ;-)

• Wait. They each initially paid 25\$
So that means to cover a 75\$ meal they spent 75-25-25-25=0
Then they get 5\$ but give two away for the waiter.
So that means now each has 3\$.

There are no dollars missing.

• *Now each has 1. Not 3, sorry.

• Show All
• I have thought it over. I even asked a friend who is better at math than you or I and she also agrees that your argument is a logical fallacy and that there is no missing number.

• OK then I respect your friend and you as well :-)
