Subject: The missing dollar problem

Hi,

I am looking for The Missing Dollar Problem. I have a group of kids that
will find this one "interesting". I have searched high and low around this
house, and the problem is no where to be found. I am hoping that someone on
list will have it and post it.

I am not sure exactly how it goes, but The Missing Dollar Problem is
unsolvable. It starts out describing a man who is paying his hotel bill. He
has $30 and the bill is $27. He tips the bellboy, and somehow gets some
change. When it is all done, he is short a dollar.

Does anyone have a copy of the problem?


Thanks!!!!!! Diane McElwain
