We never thought a £1 bill would leave us THIS confused, but this riddle has us scratching our heads.
Have you ever been to a restaurant with your pals, and (after a few glass of wine!) the bill just doesn't seem to add up?
Well, a brand new riddle has been driving the internet mad as punters are desperately trying to calculate the restaurant bill for a fictional set of diners.
Three friends split a £30 bill at the end of their meal.
They each hand the waiter £10 thinking they've settled the total. But the waiter makes a mistake and instead of £30, the group should only have been charged £25.
In a bid to split the £5 evenly he hands each diner £1 from the extra £5 and keeps £2 for himself.
So far so good right? Well things are about to get a little bit tricky.
Each of the diners get £1 back which means they each paid £9 for their meal, bringing the total to £27.
The waiter then keeps £2, which brings the total to £29… so where’s the extra £1?
GOD HELP US!
