Where is that one Rupee???

Three friends went to a hotel. The bill was Rs 75/- Each one contributed Rs.25/-. The waiter took the bill to the Cashier. The cashier was happy & decided to give them a discount of Rs.5/- & asked the waiter to returnthem Rs.5/-. Now the waiter was confused. How to distribute Rs 5 among 3 persons?He kept Rs 2 in his pocket & Gave one rupee to each one of the 3 persons.So initially each one had contributed Rs.25. Now as they are given 1 rupee back, their contributionreduces to Rs 24. They all contributed Rs 24 –That is 24×3=72 & 2 rupees are in the waiters pocket. The total becomes 74. But they Had paid Rs 75. Where is the remaining 1 rupee ?Let me know if someone able to crack this puzzle 🙂Mahes~(via) Email,thanks jagadees,hexaware)
