The riddle's a trick. You think you're solving for 30, but the way it does math, you ought to be solving for the 25 the front desk kept. Solve to 0: $30  Each of the men paid $10. $25  The Front desk kept $25 $3  Each man got $1 back $2  The bellman kept $2. ========== $30Add 'em up It all balances out just fine.
