Three Boys go to dinner . Bills was 75 dollar . each friend paid 25 , 25 , 25 dollar to witer
Manger give them 5 dollars as a concession
Witer keep 2 dollar himself and Returned 1 , 1 , 1 dollar to each boy them Each Boy paid 24 dollar
Ans = 24+24+24 = 72 + witer 2 = 74
Where is 1 dollar find it?
$70/3friends= $23.3333 + $1each boy=24.3333x3boys=$72.9+$2Witer= $75
After the $5 was returned the Bill was essentially $70.
When the manager gave back the $5 it turned the bill from being $75 to being $70. $70 divided by the 3 people who paid equals 23.33333 (etc.). Each diner paid 23.33 (after rounding). $23.33 times 3 equals $69.99, leaving 1 cent toward the food and the $2.00 that the waiter got. $2.01 divided by 3 equals 67 cents (paid by each of the diners). 23.33 plus .67 comes to the $24 that each paid.
(Now, I'm guessing I may learn that this was a trick question and all that figuring was for naught..... )
Any way you look at it, the waiter got stiffed on the tip.
But yes, the key is realizing that the total bill is $70 after the manager's discount-- but the waiter, because he didn't have a convenient way to divide the $5 refund by three people, only gave them $3 of the discount -- making their total bill $72. The restaurant got $70-- waiter got $2.
The original bill was 80$-2=78
each still paid 25$ the bill split 3 ways was 26 each got a buck back so each paid 25$ total bill 75
I knew there was a trick involved here (but I am secure enough to be make myself look like a fool in public)
(and yet the real question remains: What's with the crappy tip on an $80 bill that got turned into a $75 bill? )
