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.
I think.

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?     )
