Question 476537: U see a shirt worth $97. Since u dont have cash, you borrow $50 from your mom n $50 from your Dad, So u have $100. Since the shirt is $97 u have $3 left, U return $1 to your Mom n $1 to ur Dad n u left with $1 for yourself. Now u owe your parents $49 each. 49+49=98 + 1 = $99. Where did the other dollar go? Answer by robertb(4012) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! There is no "other" dollar. See, after borrowing $100, you used up $97 for the shirt. You returned a dollar to each of your parents, so you owe $98 total. This $98 should correspond to the $97 (for the shirt) plus the $1 that you have with you.
