# Where is the \$ 1?

Three people staying in a rented place. They pay \$10 each foe a month. Total \$30 a month as rent.The rent has been collected by the Landlord's servant. Landlord has compassion on his servant and pay him \$5 for his service out of \$30. As a good servant, he kept \$2 with him and return \$1 each to the tenants. After receiving \$1 from the servant, the total amount paid by the tenants is \$9 each. Now the question is where is the one dollar out of \$ 30 if you calculate in this way. 3 people paid x \$9 each = \$27 + \$2 (kept by the Servant) = \$29 Where gone the \$1 out of the total \$ 30?
