Logical question

I have a question:
One person is having 3 houses.
the three tenants pay 25 per month.
The owner appoints a person A to collect the total rent .
A goes and gets 25+25+25=75
Now owner gives 5 to A.
A consumes 2 for cigerattes.
so remaining is 3 to A.
Now A returns 1 to each of the tenants .
so now tenants have actually given 24 to the owner(25 previously given and 1 returned by A)
Now let us do the resultant calculation:
Each tenant given 24.
So 24+24+24=72
A cosumed 2.
total 74.
But the Actually total collection was 75(total).
Where 1 Rs gone?
Thanking you
