ASK DR. JEKYL & MR. HYDE...
Answers to the Questions You NEVER Thought to Question!
 

Dear Dr. Jekyl & Mr. Hyde:
Three men went to a hotel for the night and the manager said the room would cost 30 dollars. So they then split the cost and paid 10 dollars each. Then the manager realized he had overcharged them 5 dollars so when he was on his way taking it to them he also realized 3 men cannot split 5 dollars fairly so he took 2 dollars for himself and gave each man 1 dollar a piece - back. So the 3 men only ended up paying 9 dollars each so now 9*3 men = 27 + the 2 dollars the manager kept = 29 dollars and they started out with 30 dollars so what happened to the other dollar?

Dear TALBERRA   ~   TAXES!!!!   LOL! The answer - barring a funny and/or 'trick' riddle oriented outcome, in which case pardon me/us for being so 'scientific' - lies in WHERE one decides to start and continue dividing/subtracting the equation. According to your question the manager asked for and received $30 ($10 from each of THREE men, i.e., 10*3 = 30) BEFORE he recalculated the room fee of only $25. Which creates as much of a conundrum when deciding how to split $5 dollars 'change' between THREE as it is to have asked for $25 evenly between the same 3 men, right? So, after the fact - or tendering of $30 he decides to keep $2 for himself and THEN give 3 divided by 3 = $1 dollar back to each man - at which time if I/we were any one of those 3 men would have thought the hotel manager to be BOTH a nice guy AND a crook! (Had he told 'us' of his mistake in the first place!) Regardless, this equation balances: $10*3 = $30 minus $5 dollars BEFORE the tender so, 30 - 5 = $25. It is only HERE, at or AFTER the original tender that the manager swipes $2 for himself and gives each back 1 of the $3 dollars remaining, so in mathematical reality its: 30 - 3 = 27 which when subtracted from the ACTUAL amount tendered $25 gives us 27 - 25 = 2. Hence, $2 left for the manager to keep, let's say as a tip for his generosity! LOL!

BOOK OF THE MONTH CLUB...
A personal selection by Mr. Hyde!
 

Book of the Month THE F-WORD! -- The most controversial word in the English language - the word that still can't be used on network TV or in our major newspapers - is displayed here in its endless variety (17 senses as a noun, 28 senses as a verb, not to mention innumerable phrases, compounds, and derived forms), supported by colorful citations dating back to the word's earliest appearance in the language in the 15th century. Rather than tired cliches or graceless jokes, the F-Word contains page after page of actual, uncensored examples of the word in all its varied and robust use, from its first appearance in English in the fifteenth century. Every sense of every word containing F--k is examined in detail, with explanations and thousands of examples from many sources, including Robert Burns, Ernest Hemingway, Norman Mailer, E. E. Cummings, Jack Kerouac, soldiers' diaries, Playboy, and the Internet. The Introduction provides a revealing historical perspective on the use of this most notorious slang word. Whether you use the F-word to express outrage, exhaustion, confusion, victimization, cheating, temporary insanity, or simply fulsome lust, this book tells you everything you (n)ever wanted to know about this inventive underside of real English.
