Where Is One Euro?

Three men had dinner together. The bill was 30 euros. Everyone gave 10 euros. That is, they spent 30 euros. After that a waiter brought a new bill and said, that he was wrong. The new bill was 25 euros. The waiter returned 5 euro to men.Everyone of them took one euro. Then they gave to the waiter 2 euros to tip. So, everyone spent 9 euros for dinner. All of them also spent 2 euros to tip. 27 euros plus 2 euros equals 29 euros.Where is one euro?

(By the way, I know the answer.)

That is, they spent 30 euros altogether.

After that Then a waiter brought a new bill and said, that he was wrong made a mistake.

A person is "wrong"? - that's strong statement. I'd say "made a mistake".

The waiter returned 5 euro to men them.

Then they gave to the waiter 2 euros to as a tip.

So, everyone spent 9 euros for dinner.

"for dinner" is a logical error. Each person spent 9 Euros for dinner + tip.

All of them They collectively also spent 2 euros to as a tip.

27 euros plus 2 euros equals 29 euros.

This English is perfect, but the logic doesn't make sense. The dinner was 25 euros, so the sum of the dinner and tip was 25 + 2 = 27 euros. Each person spent 9 euros, that's 27 euros for 3 people.

Where is one euro?

This English is correct, but the question doesn't make sense.

ThAftenr that a waiter brought a new bill and said, that he hwad made a mistake wrong.

The waiter returned 5 euros to the men.

Everyoneach of them took one euro.

Then they gave to the waiter 2 euros toas a tip.

TAll ogetherf theym also spent 2 euros ftor the tip.

The five euros returned to the men was divided as follows: one euro to each man and two for the waiter so there is no discrepancy! No euro is missing.

So, everyone spent 9 euros for dinner.

27 euros plus 2 euros equals 29 euros.

This is not right.

Three meals + tip = 25 + 2=27 euro

each men kept 1 euro.

So 27 spent + 3 kept = 30 euro

Altogether, the men spent 25 euros for their meal + 2 euros for tip = 27 euros spent altogether.

Each man kept 1 euro returned from the waiter.

27 euro spent + 3 euro kept = 30 euro.

There is no euro missing!
