3 men pay 10 bucks each (3*10=30)
They get 5 bucks refundet (305=25)
So now, they only paid 25 bucks.
However, the bellboy steals 2 bucks from them, leaving ((30(52)=27)
Since they have all paid 9 bucks each, the total amount paid would be 27.
So far, there is no problem. The problem comes when the "narrator" wants to add the 2 bucks, that the bellboy took, to this number. This is incorrect math. Since the 2 bucks are part of the 5 bucks refund, the 2 bucks shall be subtracted from, not added to, 27. The "equation" that the narrator proposes, adds upp to 30(52)+2=29, which does not make any sense, in the perspective. To see where the original 30 bucks whent, we see:
Hotel manager = 25 bucks
Bellboy = 2 bucks
Man1=1 buck
Man2=1 buck
Man3=1 buck
25+2+1+1+1=30
no magic, just bad math
