Answer a Riddle and win a Gmail account!

OK...here goes.

First 5 people to PM the correct answer and thier current email addy gets a gamil invite.

3 traveling salesman have to stop for the night while on the road. They stop at a hotel and decide to share a room to split the cost up. They are informed the price of the room is $30. So they each had the man behind the counter a $10 bill.

Later that night the manager stops in to check in on things and notices that there is a error. The prices of rooms had dropped from $30 to $25 dollars. So the manager hands the bell-hop 5 $1 bills. He tells him to go and give the salemen thier refund.

On the way to the salemens room the bellhop decides that splitting $5 between 3 people is too hard. So the bell-hop decides to pocket $2 for himself. He then gives each salesman back $1.

Here is the question.

Each salesman paid $10 and recieved $1 back. That makes for $9 each that the salemen paid. But remember that the bell-hop took $2. So $9 times 3 people is $27....plus the $2 the bell-hop took and that added to the $27 is $29. What happened to the other dollar?

Here is the math by itself:

9x3=27

27+2=29

Figure out where the last dollar went and get a gmail account....don't forget...PM only for answers...don't post them here. And make sure and include the email account to send the invite too.

Have fun.
