They can't all be superclever. Superaccept it and get superover it.

Default Note to Risk Taker

If I've heard it before, I will refrain from answering (from now on).

I admit that I have heard the elevator one, but I had not heard the horse riddle or the bungalow riddle. I figured those out all by myself.



P.S. Keep 'em comming. I love riddles!

"and each man keeps $1"
The bellhop is a man kept a buck for himself.

the total in question is 25, not 30

9 + 9 + 9 - 2 =25

This is a little hard to explain but I'll try. Each man paid 9 dollars. 9 times 3 equals 27. 25 dollars for the room and 2 bucks for the bellhop.

TO put it another way - they spent 30 for the room and got 5 back. Total spent so far 25 buck. Plus 2 for the bellhop > 27.00 total Divided by 3 equals 9 dollars. Seems simple enough until semantics gets in the way of easy math.

Actually
Each man paid $9.00=$27.00
The bell hop gave them each $1.00 back = $3.00

Total $27.00 + $3.00 = $ 30.00

cha ching.

LMAO @ Mattyboy

You forgot that the bellhop is a midget who lives in a bungalow.

Everyone else (except Sydwayz23), you are correct.

We got a sharp crowd today!
