The "hook" is the suggestive notion that causes the reader to try to change directions in the middle of the equation. \$30.00, minus \$3.00 (\$1.00 to each man) = \$27.00. From there, you continue the equation in the same direction (\$2.00 to the bellhop = \$25.00). Still, a clever riddle.

While you all sound very clever, I think the bellhop dropped on the floor. Lol
