A conundrum

Three guys shairng a flat decide to buy a TV for 30 - 10 each.
They shopkeeper sells it t them and they walk home with the tv.
The shop owner tells the shop keeper he overcharged them by 5
and it should have been 25. The shopkeeper chases after the guys
but realises if he gave them 1 each from the 5 he could keep the other two.
So the guys paid 9 each making 27 and the shopkeeper kept 2 for himself. 27+2 makes 29. What happens to the other pound?

Should be 27-2 makes 25, or 27 + 3 returned makes 30.

Re: A conundrum

If they paid $27 and the price was $25 then they only overpaid by $2 which the shopkeeper stuck in his pocket.

Too easy, give us a bit of a challenge at least.
