Three friends went out for drinks. The waiter brought them a check for \$30, so each one of them paid \$10. When the waiter took the cash, he realized he had made a mistake, and the check was for \$25 instead. When he gave their change back, each friend got a dollar and they left the remaining two dollars as a tip.
