If you work it backwards it works.
97 + 3 = 100
97/2 = 48.5
Give 48.5 back to each of your parents plus another dollar each = $49.50 to each parent.
49.5*2 = 99 plus the one dollar you kept is 100.

you only got 3 bucks from change. how do you give 48.5 back to each parent.

Nooo, forget you even bought the shirt and just separate the 97 and the 3 dollars.

Edit : Or, think of it as each of the parents giving the cashier $50, getting $3 back total ($1.50 each) and each of them giving you 50 cents. You all end up with $1 and the numbers add up perfectly.

There was no missing dollar. 100 is an arbitrary number. He technically only "borrowed" $98 dollars. The $2 paid back are erroneous and can be cancelled out of the equation. He still only has $1 left over after purchasing the shirt.
Yo 1st of all u using too many big words since Idk what they mean ima take em as disrespect.....watch ya mouth.

There isn't a missing dollar.

You borrow $50 from each... so you have $100

100 - 97 = 3

now the shirt cost $97 so each parent chipped in $48.5 on it from their $50.

You give each parent back $1... and now you owe them $49.50...

So its $99 + your $1 = $100

Or a better way to put it.

Keeping the $1 puts you +1 and them -1...

When you keep the dollar it throws it off... keeping it means they let you borrow $99

You got technical as hell.... but I feel you though!! I feel you! Makes a lot of since

listen...easy fix...here is the answer....there is no missing $$$$ the wording is placed there to confuse you ...if you do the math in your head you have 100-97=3...3-2=1 in your pocket...all money is accounted for...the money is lost in the text....i have been an finance specialist for wells fargo for 6 years...and people read things and loose the balance in translation...
I aint trusting anyone who misspells the word lose..

idk why you guys care about .50 whether its 48.50 or what dont matter.

the hundred you are looking for,

50/50
49/49 + 2 paid back
shirt + 3 change
dollar kept + 2 paid back + 97 shirt

its tricking you by taking hte money he owes plus some of the money he owes. you dont do that. he owes 49 + 49. fu*k that dollar, its in the 49 already.

no there really isnt. you dont just add one, why would you do that. if you want to trace what you owe you say i owe you 49 and 49 out of the 50 and 50. 49+49=98. plus 2 is the key here. what you owe is the shirt + the dollar you kept. shirt + dollar = 98.
if nobody can understand this is because they choose to.. aint no better answer.
shirt = 97 + $1 kept = 98
100-98=2 which is what you gave your parents back..
dont let the question trick you.

100-97 = 3
3/2 = 1.5
Moms 1.50 + Dads 1.50 = 3
You keep 50 cents from your mom and 50 cents from your dad and now you have a dollar for your self.
