# Can anyone solve this Maths question please !

Three friends went to buy a Television which is priced 30pounds.

So each one contributed 10 pounds which made up the total 30 pounds.

But when the salesman enquired to the manager about the sales he said that T.V is having a 5 pound off, so the salesman wanted a share of the discount he informed the friends about 5pound off and he gave each friends 1pound back and said he wants to keep the 2 pounds, which made up the 5pound off.

But when u calculate 3 X 9 = 27 pounds and the sales man kept 2 pounds so it is 29pounds where is the 1 pound gone?

there isnt a missing pound. if you think on it they have paid £25 between them, so there is still five pounds to get back, so they all got £1 back and then the salesman kept the other two its just a trick question

This might be true lol.

Cheeky git, I'd have asked him for the other £5 back too.

The total cost is 9 X 3 =27pound, then salesman kept 2 pound this is also expense so u add up.

He kept £2 of the £5 discount, not £2 of their money!
