The hotel was paid R250, the guys each got back R10 = R30 and the porter was "paid" R20 therefore the total is R300.

John, James, and George all book into a hotel. The clerk behind the reception desk says they owe him R300, so they split the bill and each friend pays R100. A while later, the clerk figures he made an error by overcharging the boys, and that the bill should only be R250. What to do. After some contemplation, he decides to rectify things by giving the extra R50 to the porter and telling him to return it to the boys. The porter is a clever lad and, while walking to the room, realises that he cannot divide the money equally with what he was given. Since the boys don't know what amount the cost has been revised to, the wily porter pockets R20 and passes on R30 to the boys. Now the mathematical crux of the problem has been reached. John, James, and George each received R10 back from the hotel, which means that each one paid a total of R90, and so the overall bill was R270, not R300. The porter has R20 in his pocket, and R270 + R20 = R290. What has happened to the remaining R10?[/
