11-Jul-2019: The July mid-month conundrum. Now that school holidays are nearly upon us, here is a slightly harder one. A prize will be drawn among correct answers submitted through the contact page by 31-August. 

A diner pays a bill of £30 to the waiter. When the waiter gives the £30 to the cashier, the cashier realises that the diner has been overcharged £5. She gives £5 to the waiter to refund to the diner. However, the waiter is dishonest, and he tells the diner that he has been overcharged £3, and only refunds him £3, keeping the other £2 for himself. 

Now, the diner has paid £27, the waiter has kept £2. Where is the remaining £1 of the original £30? See the solution here.
