### P♥PER G♥NGST♥R

I got no idea why, but i'm into black white dark things nowadays.

no, i'm not being an emo kid.

Just a feeling you know?

Like for example *other than having really spooky evil thoughts* , Nouvelle Vague's Psyche.

& I even manage to scare the shit out of myself , I couldnt sleep till 6am!

ohmygod.

uhm, btw I just downloaded Dead or Alive's ; You Spin Me.

Its my bimbo tune now, lol.

I know, you're prolly thinking ; why the fark is she being so random.

lolol.

& i'm on some rollercoaster moodswing(s) now, farkkk.

The day was up and down, literally.

Met up with babycally at The Curve, did some bank in and errands.

Had some ber-bonding time at The Library.

Wanted to drop by Ikea cause I love exploring and playing around with their stuffs lol.

Its like an adult playground, get what I mean? Harhar.

Anyway we couldnt make it because we went to get our hair done.

Headed off to Kota D's for Entranze grand opening.

Missed the lion dance, but they had dancers performing after that.

Me, Cally, SarnyFarny and Abigail play card games/drinking games, uhms.

Left and had supper at Mano Mega Curry House with the bunchies (Cally, CH, Abbie, Ravin, Sarny, LV)

So like , yeaaa.

Anyway saw this on someones facebook page, got me think for quite some time.

Try to solve it if you can (:

Cause I cant and i'm cracking my head for answers, argh. Its driving me insane!

So the question is, if each person paid $10 and took back $1 (which brings the amount of $9 per person paid for their meal). Now lets do the math, $9 x 3 = rm27 ; Plus $2 as tips = $29. Where did the $1 go?

Manage to figure it out?

Drop me a comment if you know the answer!

much loves, xx.

You see, when you times $9 and $3, it's $27, but that's the amount they SPEND (dinner[$25] plus tips[$2]).

So the remaining $3 is the amount they took back ("Then each of them took back their respective $1")

i reckon the last part is there to confuse you ay. haha

and from the 1st method, the bill is only $25, so $27-$25 = $3,

and the balance $3 is split among the three of us.

which means the extra $2 being added to the $25 (from the bill) is the tips.

Anon : I dont really get what youre saying uhms.

Anon : Yea, I kno right. Lol, but still it gets you thinking hahaha.

Anon : Wow, I SEE MATHEMATICAL CALCULATIONS! Hardcore ;p

Jill : Huh? What do you mean? I'm lost ):

Godddd , I dont get it!!!!! Someone please explain? Booboo ;S

They spent $9 X 3 = $27

$27 - $25 = $2 (That's the tips)

$30 - $27 = $3 are what they took back and keep. (

Then each of them took back their respective $1)Tips = $2

Total bill = $25

Total bill with tips = $27

So the total bill is actually $27, and there's no remaining.

I think the question is trying to confuse you in a way that the 3 person have to pay $29(total bill + tips), which is incorrect. Because when they pay $9, it already included the tips.

each of them paid $9, 9x3=$27.

the cost of the meal was $25.

$25+$2 tips = $27 in total,

which is what they paid!

the question's last bit tricked u into adding YET ANOTHER EXTRA $2 for tips to make it seem as tho the total paid was $29 and asked for the missing $1.

when its really simple:

Paid = $30

Meal = $25

Each took back $1 = $3

Tips = $2

$25 + 3$ + $2 = $30!

i hope u get it cause i think everyone explained well enough already! cheers

about your post...

each of them paid 9

so 9 X 3 = 27

+ 3 which is the balance

= 30

The tips to the waiter is not counted as it is a cost.

25+2 =27

so 28 is the Total cost.

27+1+1+1 = 30
