Heyhey my dearest fellow chrunchyrollers, I have a problem that I need to ask you guys for help.

So 3 people went to hotel to rent a room, it cost $30 per room. Each person handed out $10 and gave it to the receptionist. When the receptionist gave the money ($30) to her boss. Her boss stated, there's a special today which cost $25 per room. And handed out $5 back to the receptionist. The receptionist took/stole $2 and gave each of the three people $1 dollar back.

But here's the problem, when the receptionist handed the each person $1 back, each person paid $9 instead of $10. 9*3=27 The receptionist took $2 so 27+2=29 where did that $1 go?

Please help me out, cuz this problem is making me feel stupid. Thanks beforehand! :D

EDIT
Ok, I try to simplify as much as I can, because I don't completely understand it myself.

There are three people, each paid $10 for a room that costs $30. Because 3*10=30.

But the room is no longer $30, but $25 instead. So there's $5 over.

The receptionist took $2 from the $5. 5-2=3

The receptionist gave the remaining $3 back to that group of 3 people, each person gets $1. Still seems totally reasonable, right?

But here's the thing, when the receptionist gave $1 to each person back, everyone only paid $9 instead of $10, because 10-1=9 Correct?

If every person paid only $9, and there are three people, so in total they paid $27 because 3*9=27

But the receptionist only took $2 and 27+2=29 there was $30 in the beginning, where did that $1 go?

I don't know what the hell you're talking about.

I just calculated 30-5+3=28.

Even 25+3=28.

So it's right, she only stole 2 dollars.

The people didn't pay 9 dollars. They would have to pay 8 dollars and 33 cents. One would even have to put another cent in. You can't just round it to 9. 25/3=8.33 NOT

9
So the remainder just fucked you up. But when you calculate it properly. It's correct.

That's why when it comes to money, you never round off. You give exact change, including cents.

Anyway, sorry, but crunchyroll isn't here to do your homework for you.
