i flunked maths but im pretty sure that because of the 1-1 in the middle there are actually several answers, all correct in a sense and all wrong if you know what i mean...

if indices (<-- dem der bracket tings-->) were used then you would be able to give a proper answer... and also the 1x0 is gonna confuse people that didn't pay attention in school too...

if it was like this... 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+(1-1)+1+1+1+1+1+1x0=

then you would be able to give a definitive answer, you gets meh?

edit: we used to do shit like this all the time in school, its harder to do when you are perma-baked liked i was in year 11...

I don't. I think these guys are much more on the ball. Zero to them is complete nonsense... http://mathforum.org/dr.math/faq/faq.divideby0.html I mean come on why the fuck is it between 1 and -1 on an axis?!

Lol apparently dividing by zero isn't allowed. Maybe Logikz could shed some light on this he's a numbers man?

A few minutes later, the clerk realizes he has made an error and overcharged the trio by £5. He asks the bellhop to return £5 to the 3 friends who had just checked in.

The bellhop sees this as an opportunity to make £2 as he reasons that the three friends would have a tough time dividing £5 evenly among them; so he decides to tell them that the clerk made a mistake of only £3, giving a dollar back to each of the friends. He pockets the leftover £2 and goes home for the day!

Now, each of the three friends gets a dollar back, thus they each paid £9 for the room which is a total of £27 for the night. We know the bellhop pocketed £2 and adding that to the £27, you get £29, not £30 which was originally spent.

Where did the other pound go?

AFAIK Zero technically is a number, even though it isn't odd or even, it cannot be divided or multiplied, subtracted or added, it isn't a prime number and it isn't the square root of a number...

dunno where the other pound went, maybe the bellhop dropped it, but in any case he's a cunt for stealing their money and then giving back to them Dollars instead of Pounds...
