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
