Three men go into a cafe, they each order a coffee and a pastry. The bill comes to £30, each pay £10 in cash. The waiter takes the money to the counter, and at the counter the head waiter says to the waiter, there has been a mistake, they were overcharged, it is meant to be £25. So the waiter goes back to give back the money, but decides well they don't know they were overcharged so much, and decides not to give it all back to them. He give back the three men £3, £1 each, and pockets the other £2 for himself. So if each person paid £9 and the waiter pocketed £2, where is the other pound £ ?
