3 boys go to the restaurant. Their bill was 75 rs..
So they contributed 25 each. Manager then gives 5 rs back
to the waiter and then waiter gave 3 rs back to them and
put 2 rs into his pocket..
So their actual contribution is 24 because they got 1-1 rs
back. so 24*3=72 and 2 rs into the waiter's pocket. so
where is 1 rs?

Answer / pankaj kumar baruah
actually this problem should be solved like this....
they gave to manager==75.00
manager returns ==5.00
so their actual expense=70.00(75-5)
and again 2 rs is in waiters hand;so the actual expense
and they each expense is=24.00;
there is nothing like loss of 1rs.

Answer / nishant
Well Money is not Missing.
24*3=72 and that's it, it includes the money to the
manager+the money to the waiter.
the rest of the money is already back to the Guys.
So it is something like:-
24*3(Which the boys lost, it includes 70rs to manager+2 rs
to waiter)+3(Which the boys got back)=75
Not a single penny is missing.

Answer / george prasanna
ooh... a vey interesting one.....
the bill amount was Rs.75....
three of them contributed Rs.25 each.so 3 x 25 =75 Rs,,,,,,
They had a discount of 5 Rs...
So their share is 75-5=70 70/3 =23.33
Now the waiter returned three rupees as a whole .... so
23.33 x 3 = 70.00 + 3 = 73 Rs...
The remaining 2Rs is with the waiter... So 73 + 2 =75

Answer / pritam agrawal
actually 1 rs is nt missing.....
the total expense i.e. rs 72 includes the 2 rs given to the
waiter.....so no question of 72+2 addition.........instead
it would be like...70rs to manager....2 rs to waiter and 3
rs given back to the boys....so a total of 75 initial

Answer / anirudha shinde
The real contribution is 24.33 not 24 because waiter kept 2
RS at himself, this will minus from bill amount the actual
bill amount would be 75-2=73.

Answer / kashif
Its simple math. Question is totally wrong.
Waiters amount is added twice in question.
Manager took 70
Waiter Took 2
Then why +2 added again in the amount.
They Actually paid 72 rupees not 74.

Answer / harsh agrawal
24 rs. provided by three boys already includes the 2 rs
taken by the waiter. thus it is not two rs. that should be
added in 72 rs. rather it should be 3 rs.
