10 people came into a hotel with 9 rooms and each guest wanted his own room. The bellboy solved this problem.
He asked the tenth guest to wait for 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 ninth guest to room number 8. Then he returned to room number 1 and took the tenth guest to room number 9, still vacant.
