The £1 riddle that centres around a restaurant bill that doesn't seem to add up is the latest fiendishly tough brain teaser to leave the internet baffled
After the waiter takes their money, he realises that he's made a mistake in totting up the bill and instead of £30, the party should only have been charged £25.
However, he can't figure out how to split £5 evenly. So he decides to give each diner back £1 from the extra £5 and keep £2 for himself.
Each of the three diners gets £1 back that meaning they paid £9 each for their meal, bringing the total to £27.
