I think that the last penny was given to the boy who bought their soda for them. Since there is 3 boys who have 10 cents each, together that makes 30 cents and they ask another boy to buy the soda for them. When he returns and give their change back, they probably gave him the last penny.

this sounds familiar. i remember being bored enough to google paradoxes. and this was one of them. only it was girls and a cashier.

as for the question. uhh lets see how understandable i can make this..

3 boys x 10c = 30c
soda = 25
30 - 25 = 5c

three boys get 3c at first
so thats 3 boys with 1c and one without, and theres 2c left over so he takes that. so theres no missing penny. makes no sense why so much trouble is over 5c. =\

There is no missing penny.Three boys had 10cents e...

There is no missing penny.

Three boys had 10cents each, which equals to 30 cents. They ask another boy to buy them a soda which cost 25cents. So they have 5 cents back. The four boys spilt the 5 cents to each other so 3 boys got 1 cent back and 1 boy got 2 cent back.

STILL CONFUSED?HERE:

Three boys' money = 30 cents
Soda cost = 25 cents

Money left = 5 cents

SPLIT IT UP:

Spongebob = 1cent
Patrick = 1cent
Plankton = 1cent
Mr. Krabs = 2cents

The confusion can be avoided by tracking down the real money!
IT'S A TRICK QUESTION!
