## German/Swiss border

A woman who lived in Germany during World War II wanted to cross the German/Swiss border in order to escape Nazi pursuers. The bridge which she is to cross is a half mile across, over a large canyon. Every three minutes a guard comes out of his bunker and checks if anyone is on the bridge. If a person is caught trying to escape German side to the Swiss side they are shot. If caught crossing the other direction without papers they are sent back. She knows that it takes at least five minutes to cross the bridge, in which time the guard will see her crossing and shoot her. How does she get across?
She waits until the guard goes inside his hunt, and begins to walk across the bridge. She gets a little more than half way, turns around, and begins to walk toward the german side once more. The guard comes out, sees that she has no papers, and sends her "back" to the swiss side.

## Three people in a hotel

Three people check into a hotel. They pay \$30 to the manager and go to their room. The manager finds out that the room rate is \$25 and gives \$5 to the bellboy to return. On the way to the room, the bellboy reasons that \$5 would be difficult to share among three people, so he pockets \$2 and gives \$1 to each person. Now, each person paid \$10 and got back \$1. So they paid \$9 each, totalling \$27. The bellboy has \$2, totalling \$29. ) Where is the remaining dollar?
Each person paid \$9, totalling \$27. The manager has \$25 and the bellboy has \$2. The bellboy's \$2 should be added to the manager's \$25 or substracted from the tenant's \$27, not added to the tenants' \$27.
