The innkeeper asked for $300 (must have been a very nice room).

Each man paid $100, making up the $300.

Hoping for repeat business, the innkeeper later decided to allow a discount for the day, charging only $250 for the room. She told DH to return $50 to the three men.

DH quietly pocketed $20 for himself. He gave the remaining $30 back to the three men.

Each man took back $10. Therefore, each man paid 100 - 10 = $90 to the inn.

$90 x 3 = $270 + DH's $20 = $290.

Question: Where has the remaining $10 gone?
