three guys splices 10000 each and buys something for 30000... right after they leave the store the salesman realises the price was 25000 and gives 5000 to his worker tells him to run after them....(never happens but still).... the boy keeps 2000 of the money and gives them 3000 of the money...

But 9000*3= 27000+ 2000(the boy took)=29000.

where is 1000 of the money??

Why r u adding 2000. the correct addition will be 3000. The 2000 which boy took is included in 27000.

after getting back 3000 each have paid 9000 and including the 2000 the boy took is all the money. 25000 for store owner, 2000 for the boy and 3000 back which is 30000. but 3 * 9000 + 2000 is 29000

r u serius mosafir????

first of all let me clear the math for you you are adding the wrong sums

first for the store owner 25,000 plus the 3,000 that you gave back per each person and the 2,000 that was stolen!!!

i dont know why your multiplying 9,000 by three and adding 2,000 to that????

i hope your not a kindergrad!!!! :D

The amount shown is misleading .... It should be

25,000 cost of item + 2,000 (boy took) + 3,000 (amount returned) = 30,000. This is the perspective of the shop owner (if he knew the boy stole the 2,000)

27,000 cost of item + 3,000 (amount returned) = 30,000. this is the perspective of the buyer.

The confusion started when you mixed up both shopowner and buyers perspective.

27,000 cost of item is the perspective of buyer added to the amount stolen 2,000 which is the perspective of shopowner. this creates the illusion of the missing 1,000.

three guys splices 10000 each and buys something for 30000... right after they leave the store the salesman realises the price was 25000 and gives 5000 to his worker tells him to run after them....(never happens but still).... the boy keeps 2000 of the money and gives them 3000 of the money...

But 9000*3= 27000+ 2000(the boy took)=29000.
