1. 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 24×3=72 & 2 rupees are in the waiters pocket.

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

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

2. 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
