This one was already told (by me)

There is no answer because the dollar does not disappear. It is misleading. Why would you add the $2 that the bellboy kept when you subtracted the $3 that were given back...

(10-1)*3-2=25 is the correct solution... you do not add the two

Sorry About that try this one

Riddle

After teaching his class all about roman numerals (X = 10, IX=9 and so on)
the teacher asked his class to draw a
single continuous line and turn IX into 6.
The only stipulation the teacher made was,
that the pen could not be lifted from the paper until the line was complete.

It's okay shockbox, this is a huge thread, it is very easy to repeat riddles, I am guilty as well.

Could it be that they draw it exactly as he did and then just turn the paper upside-down?

since keith128 didn't post a riddle yet

try this

Before I came, confusion abounded.
I'm late, I'm late was frequently sounded.

I'm not average, but was based on a mean.
My size, in theory, is constant: fifteen.

I'm two dozen steps, again in theory.
But walk my length and you'd get weary.

I take half and quarter steps at times.
In reality, I don't follow the lines.

I shrink to nothing in two cold extremes.
Over a thousand miles wide in the betweens.

What am I?

Ok Try This One

The local grocer is a would-be mathematician.
He likes to arrange his apples in nice rows.
However, when he lays his apples in rows of 3
he has one left over.
When he lays them in rows of 5 he also has one left over.
Remarkably he also has one left over when he arranges
them in rows of 7 and 9. 11 seems to be the magic number,
for, in rows of 11 there are no apples left over.
How many apples does the grocer have?

Thank you Cheyenne 09.

A grandfather clock chimes the appropriate number of times to indicate the hour, as well as chiming once at each quarter hour. If you were in another room and heard the clock chime just once, what would be the longest period of time you would have to wait in order to be certain of the correct time?
