#### Re: The Definitive Conspiracy Theorist, New World Order, …

Mathematical proof of a supreme being: God.

Three men came to stay at a hotel, and when they went to the desk to check in, they decided to share a room to save money. The manager assigned them a room and charged them \$30.00 altogether. Each paid \$10.00 for his share, and then they all were shown up to their room by the bellboy.

A short while later, the manager discovered that she had overcharged the three men for the room she had assigned them; it was actually only \$25.00. She took \$5.00 out of the till and instructed the bellboy to go up to their room and return the money to them.

The bellboy saw here an opportunity to make a little extra tip. He rationalized that \$5.00 was difficult to split three ways, and decided to take up \$3.00 to the men, giving each of them \$1.00 return, and pocket the other \$2.00 for himself.

So the men each put in \$10 and got \$1 back. So that’s 9 times 3, which is 27, plus the \$2 the bellboy took makes \$29. Where is the other \$1?

I submit God kept it.

Clever, Rog.

However, if the bellboy had returned the \$2.00 as well, each man would have received \$1.667 (rounded).

1.667 times 3 = \$5.001 – thus the three men only paid \$25.00 and the bellboy was out \$0.001 (don’t ask me where he got it – I think it has something to do with quantum mechanics!)
