# Hotel Bill Payment

Three people check into a hotel. They pay \$60 for the rent of the room. After they check-in, the manager realize that the rent for the room is \$55. So, he gives \$5 to the bellboy and asks him to give it to them. The bellboy thinks that it will be difficult for the three people to share \$5 among them and seeking the personal benefit, he pockets \$2 and gives the remaining \$3 to them.

Now, each person paid \$20 and got back \$1. In this manner, each of them paid just \$19 which totals to the amount of \$57. The bellboy has \$2 with him and adding them, we get \$59. So where is the remaining \$1?

##### Akbar Birbal Who is Who

The great emperor Akbar once ruled India. He was well known for his intelligence. But along with that, he was known for the Nine Gems in his court. One of the nine gems was Birbal, a quick witted and extremely intelligent man. The stories of his wit were widely popular.

Once a king ruling in a distant land heard of Birbal. To check his wit, he sent an invitation and called him to visit his land. Akbar allowed Birbal to go and he took off on the journey.

Upon reaching that kings kingdom, he was welcomed with flowers. He was then escorted to the palace of the king. Upon entering the palace, Birbal found that there were six people sitting in front of him adorning the same robe. They were also lookalike and it was hard to judge who the real king was.

After a couple of minutes, Birbal approached one of them and bowed in front of him greeting him.

That was the real king. How did Birbal know who was the real king ?
