# Where is the missing pound?

1,285.2K Views

Three men walk into a hotel and rent a room for 30 pounds. But the hotel manager realized the room should have been only 25 pounds. So he sent the dishonest bellboy and told him to give 5 pounds back to the men. The bellboy cheated and said to the three men the room was actually 27 pounds and gave them 3 pounds back and donated the other to his favourite charity. Where is the missing pound because 25 + 4 =29?
