25+25+25 = 75 the

But manager ne 5 wapas kiye 75 - 5 = 70

70 divided by 3 = 23.3333

23.3333 + 1 = 24.3333

24.3333 x 3 = 73

73 + 2 = 75

Either calculate according to the sequence it happened or in the way it was spent. If you mix the both, you are creating merely confusion.

Three friends collected 25 each and gave it to waiter. 25+25+25=75

Manager took them all and returned 5 rupees.
waiter took 2 rupees from it. so 3 are left
each friend took a rupee and hence each friend had to pay 24.

Alternatively each friend had to pay 24
which is 24+24+24=72
70 were taken by manager and 2 by waiter.

u cannot add the extra 1 rupee which was not at all there in the 1st place because u are actually counting the 1 rupee given by the manager and it cannot be divided by 3 persons and even if u divide by 3,it comes to 0.33333 which rounds to 1.
There lies the answer
