The Lost Dollar

Question: 3 men walk into a hotel. The room they want it is 30 dollars. They each pay ten. Once they get up to their room the manager realizes that the room was only supposed to be 25 dollars. He sends the bellboy up with 5 1 dollar bills. On the way to their room, the belly boy thinks "I can't split five 1s between five guys". So, he pockets 2 of the dollars and gives each of the men a dollar. Now, the men have only paid 9 dollars each. 9X3=27 and the bellboy pocketed 2 dollars which makes 29... Where is the other dollar?
