Level: Very Tricky.
Three friends go to a restaurant. They eat worth rs. 30 (ignore the currency) and decide to share the amount. Each paid rs. 10 to the waiter. The waiter brought the money to the manager. The manager was in a good mood and gave the waiter rs. 5 to give to the friends back. Now the waiter had seen that they had shared the money and given, so he kept rs. 2 in his pocket and gave a rupee each to the three friends.
Now, the three friends paid rs. 9 each. 9 times 3 is 27. Rs. 2 were with the waiter. 27+2=rs. 29. where did a rupee go from the initial rs. 30?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.19x3=27. But you shouldn't have added 2 because the rs.2 tip came from the rs.27 paid. You should have added the rs.3 because it was the amount given back. Therefore, there is no missing buck. It's all logic.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The correct answer is, the question itself is wrong. What is clear to us is that the friends paid 30, 5 given back to waiter and 3 retained by the friends. To wwe123, 27 came from 303 and the three is included. You have no reason to add it again.
