**What color is his hat?**

There are 3 boys sitting in a row so that the first boy cannot see the boys behind him, the second boy sees only the boy in front of him, and the last boy sees the 2 boys in front.

There is a bag with 5 hats in it. Two of the hats are blue and three are red.

A hat is randomly selected from the bag and placed on the head of each boy.

The boys are asked this question: "What color is the hat on your head?"

The boy in the back says "I don't know".

The boy in the middle says "I don't know".

Based on this information, the boy in front knows the color of the hat on his head. How?

**The missing dollar**

You work at a hotel and 3 men show up for a room. "How much does a room cost", they ask. "Thirty dollars" you reply, and each of the three men hand you a 10-dollar bill. After a while you realize that there is a sale today and that you should have only charged 25$. When you explain this to them, they say to just give them back one dollar each. As you leave, you realize that the three men paid 27$ for the room, which is 9 * 3, and in your pocket you have a 2 dollar tip. When you add it up it shows that they paid 27 dollars for the room plus a 2 dollar tip which equals 29 dollars. But didn't you start with 30 dollars? Where is the missing dollar?
