Who loses?
A town on the US-Mexico border where a US dollar is worth 90 cents in Mexican currency. In the town just north of the border a Mexican dollar is worth 90 cents in US currency. A cowboy went into the Mexican town and bought a 10 cent soda. He paid for it with a Mexician dollar, and he was given a US dollar in change since the American dollar is worth only 90 cents there. Crossing the border into the US, he bought a 10 cent soda in the American town, paid for it with the US dollar he just got in Mexico, and recieved a Mexican dollar in change since the Mexican dollar is worth only 90 cents north of the border.He goes back to Mexico and buys another soda, then back to the US and buys another, and he does this day and night, always ending up with a dollar, just as he started. Who loses?

Level 2

Special Rate
Three guests checking into the hotel were told that rooms were \$15 apiece. They each gave the bellhop \$15, a total of \$45. When the desk clerk heard this he reminded the bellhop that the rooms were only \$10 apiece. He kept the \$30 for the room and told the bellhop to return the balance. On the way up the stairs the bellhop reasoned that since the guests didn't know exactly how much the rooms cost, they would be happy with any rebate. The bellhop gave each of the three guests \$3, a total of \$9, keeping \$6 for himself. Here is where the problem arises. Each guest paid \$12 for his room, a total of \$36. The bellhop kept \$6. This is a total of \$42. What happened to the other \$3?
