Threes friends went to a hotel. The bill was Rs 75/-. Each one contributed Rs.25/-.The waiter took the bill to the cashier.The cashier was happy & decided to give them a discount of Rs.5/- & asked the waiter to return them Rs.5/-.Now the waiter was confused. How to distribute Rs 5 among 3 persons? He kept Rs 2 in his pocket & gave one rupee to each one of the 3 persons. So initially each one had contributed Rs.25. Now as they are given 1 rupee back, their contribution reduces to Rs 24. They all contributed Rs 24 — that is 24×3=72 & 2 rupees are in the waiters pocket.
The total becomes 74. But they had paid Rs 75.
Where is the remaining 1 rupee?.
May God help you.
Check your pocket for 1 Rupee.

Eat something and try again.
The Answer For The This Puzzle…
As said by G3…..
“Actually that Rs.72/- includes the waiters tips too.. so the remaining Rs.3/- is actually what they have Re.1/- each”
We should not add Rs.2/- to Rs.72/- instead, Rs.3/- should be added as that has been deducted from their bill and it gives the total amount which they have given to the waiter. And the Rs.2/-, which the waiter has taken becomes part of their bill or tips, which cannot be included. Got it..
