# Quizzes for IQ of any kind

Three G.I. recruits come out of the barracks and enter a bar across the street.

On a slate on the wall the whiskey gets fixed 9 dollars.

Leaning on the bar each of them asks for a whiskey.

Each of them puts a 10 dollars note down the counter. That makes 30 $.

The tenant is eager to be kindly to that young volunteers about to leave for Irak; he gives back 5 notes of 1 buck.

Each boy takes back a buck. And they give the 2 left bucks to the waiter.

Now letâ€™s work it out.

Each recruit paid 10 $ minus 1, it is 9 $.

Together they paid 9 $ x 3 = 27 $

Plus the 2 $ given to the waiter, that makes 27 $ + 2 $ equals 29 $.

Where has the last damned 30th buck gone?

Please help me solving the issue.
