Math can work in the dinner

Angel, Kassey, and Angelica having a dinner decided to share the cost. The waiter produced a bill for \(P300.00\), so each contributed \(P100.00\). In presenting the money to the cashier, the waiter found that the correct total should have been \(P 250.00\). The cashier returned \(P50.00\) to the waiter, who pocketed \(P20.00\) and returned \(P10.00\) to each other of diners. Thus, each had paid \(P90.00\) and the total payment was \(P270.00\); what happened to the other dollar?
