I’ve thought about this and I cant figure it out…am I being thick?

3 men in café, have food, bill comes to £30 so they give waiter £10 each.

Apparently waiter got bill wrong - it should have been £25. So manager gives him £5 to take back to men.

He decides to pocket £2 and give them each £1 back (because they won't know).

How much therefore did each man pay? (£9 surely….£10 - £1 back?)

3 x 9 = 27

Plus £2 in waiter’s pocket = £29!

Where did other £1 go?

Edit: appalling grammar!
