Three men eat at a restaurant. The bill comes to £25. They each pay £10. When the waiter brings the £5 change they take back £1 each and leave a £2 tip. So each man has paid £9, which totals £27. The waiter has the £2 tip, which makes £29, so where's the other £1 gone?

This is just a words game ... nothing to it:

30 - 5 = 25 + 3 = 28 + 2 = 30

Each man paid 9x3 = 27. This includes the meal AND the tip. Then each got a dollar back, so, 27+3x1 = 30, and there is no missing dollar.

The question makes you think the 9x3 only includes the meal.
