Today I have a very interesting puzzle for you. Some of you might have heard about this before. Do you know the answer? Here is the puzzle once again.

Three friends went to a restaurant for lunch. When the bill arrived, it came exactly $30. So each person put in $10 towards the bill. The waiter took the money but the manager pointed out that the customers had been overcharged by $5. The dishonest waiter took five $1 coins from the till and kept 2 for himself and gave back the other 3 back to the customers.

Each of the friends had paid $10 minus the $1 they got back for the meal. That is each paid $9 which in total is $27 for all the 3 friends. The waiter had kept $2 making a total of $27 + $2 = $29.**So what happened to the other $1?****Answer**

There is no missing dollar here. The friends spent $ 27 together. From that $25 they paid for the bill and the remaining $2 had taken by the waiter. But I have one question for you -Who told you to add $2 to $27?
