## Three Hunters Riddle

Three hunters just finished hunting for the night and went down to a motel. They couldn't afford three separate rooms so they decided to get one room, and split the price. The room costed \$30. (It was a run-down motel, but that's not the point.) So, they each paid their \$10 and went to their room. The employee running the check-in/ check-out desk realized that she overcharged them, so she sent a bell-boy to return the extra cash. On the way the bell-boy wondered how to equally split the money... he wasnt the smart type so he just slid \$2 into his pocket as a tip. That way the hunters would get \$1 each. Well... they got their \$1 each right? So in the end they all payed \$9 each, which makes \$27. Plus the \$2 in the bell-boy's pocket makes \$29...

What happened to the last dollar?
Hint:
They didn't really pay \$9 each, remember? The bell-boy was too lazy to add up the actual sum that they would pay. They reeeally payed about a \$8.66 each. So \$8.66 times the three of them equals about \$25, plus the \$5 in the bell-boys equals \$30
