3 men eat out, the bill is £30, they split it £10 each + pay cash. The waiter comes back over + says the meal only comes to £25, so gives each a pound back and keeps £2 as a tip. So each pays £9. 9 x 3 = 27 and 27 + 2 = 29. Where did the last £ go?

30-3=27. There is no +2 if the waiter keeps the tip from the payment...(s)he never took it from the money he gave back.

1/3 = 0.33333333333333333333333

2/3 = 0.66666666666666666666666
