    Try this Riddle....

    Where is that one Rupee ??? try this riddle.

    Might be an old but still no answer to it as far as I know.......

    Three friends went to a hotel. The bill was Rs 75/-

    Each one contributed Rs.25/-. The waiter took the bill to the Cashier.

    The cashier was happy & decided to give them a discount of Rs.5/- & asked the waiter to return them Rs.5/-.

    Now the waiter was confused. How to distribute Rs 5 among 3 persons? He kept Rs 2 in his pocket &

    Gave one rupee to each one of the 3 persons. So initially each one had contributed Rs.25. Now as they are given 1 rupee back, their contribution reduces to Rs 24.


     


    They all contributed Rs 24 That is 243=72 & 2 rupees are in the waiters pocket.

    The total becomes 74. But they Had paid Rs 75.


    Where is the remaining 1 rupee??????? ??

    yea i heard it few yrs ago......
    its just a logic, if we count in the other way then it will give us the results...

    like:
    75-3=72
    24*3=72+2=74
    But if we count it like:
    25-1=24
    25-1=24
    25-1=24
    -----
    72
    and they have got three rupees back so:
    72+3=75
