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?
