Tommy went to town with $50, but returned at night with $150. He bought a hat at a clothing store and some apples at the market, then he had his eyes tested. He was paid every Thursday by check. The banks were opened only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The eye doctor was closed on Saturday. The market was closed on both Thursday and Friday. On what day did the man go to town?

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. Therefore, each customer paid $9; multiplied by 3 this equals $27; plus $2 for the tip equals $29. Where is the remaining dollar?
The $2 tips should be deducted from $27 instead of added to $27.

$27-$2 = $25 which is the check amount.
