    Three friends have a nice meal together, and the bill is $25

    The three friends pay $10 each, which the waiter gives to the Cashier

    The Cashier hands back $5 to the Waiter

    But the Waiter can't split $5 three ways, so he gives the friends one dollar each and keeps 2 dollars as a tip.

    They all paid $10 and got $1 back. $10-$1 = $9

    There were three of them 3 X $9 = $27

    If they paid $27 and the waiter kept $2: $27+$2=$29

    Where did the other dollar go? $30 - $1 = $29

    There is nothing to break the head here. This small arithmentic even a five year kindergartener can give you a straight answer.

    If they paid $27(i.e $9@), where would the addition 2$ comes from on top of the paid $27 for making it $29?, the simple algorithm would be no change back if the waiter keep $2 as a tip.
