# 13 People Went To A Hotel Which Had 12 Rooms....How can everybody have his own room?

477 views

13 people went to a hotel which had 12 rooms and each guest wanted his own room.
The bell boy solved this problem.
He asked the thirteenth guest to wait a little with the first guest in room number 1.
So in the first room there were two people.
The bellboy took the third guest to room number 2, the fourth to number 3, ..., and the twelfth guest to room number 11.
Then he returned to room number 1 and took the thirteenth guest to room number 12, still vacant.

in 13 People there is one married couple except first and 13th. They(Married Couple) stayed in one room.
So each guest has his own room. :)

At laest try to put some logic in the answers before giving them.

Four people got out of a car and went into a hotel that was across the parking lot. It was pouring rain and none of them had anything to protect themselves from the rain with, yet only three of them were soaked by the rain.
Can you explain this ?
