three people check into a hotel. they pay the manager \$30 and go to their room. The mangager suddenly remembers that the room rate is \$25 and gives \$5 to the bell boy to return to the people. On the way to the room, the bellboy reasons that \$5 would be difficult to share among three people so he pcokets \$2 and gives \$1 back to each person. Now each person paid \$10 and got back \$1. So they paid \$9 each, totalling up to \$27. The bellboy has \$2, totalling up to \$29. Where is the missing \$1?

please give as thorough of an explanation as possible please! thanks a bunch!
