the shirt cost 97. he received 100.
after buying the shirt, he receives 3 dollars in change.
from the change he gets back from the shirt, he gives his mom 1 and his dad 1.
he no longer owes 50 each, but now 49.
49+49=98.. he already gave them 2. 98+2=100
his one dollar doesnt count.
hes not immediately paying them back cuz he doesnt have the money, which is why he borrowed it in the first place.

the math is wrong, 97 divided by 2 is 48.50, that's the problem, the person who did it was stupid and incorrect...you would get 3 back, but that 50 cents would break down for the last dollar...smh...retards...

1st of all u dont owe a dollar to urself, so remove that from the equation

2nd if u paid ur parents each a dollar already then u only owe a total of $98 which is the 49 u owe ur mon and the 49 u owe ur dad

so they put a dollar in that didnt belong and didnt account for the 2 already paid back to try to confuse

the 2 he gave them is what lowered his debt to 49 each. You cant say he paid back 1 to each parent so he now owes 49 then turn around and say 49 + 49 + the two he gave back to both. The two he gave back was factored in when you said he no longer owes 50 each but now 49.

He never paid his parents 2 dollars. He didnt pay back 48 dollars. He paid back 49 to both. Which left him with 2 dollars. The equation just took out one of the dollars intentionally to confuse you. Its 2 dollars in change one he kept for himself the other mysteriously disappeared. Split the missing dollar between the 2 and add your one dollar and there you have it.

there is no fu*king $100 why everybody keep starting with $100???

$100 is not relevant since he payed back $2

so all u have to do is start from $98

bought the shirt for $97, and kept $1 for himself
now he owes back $98 ($49 x 2)

simplest way to look @ it

This was answered pages ago. You're doubling counting the $1 in his pocket.

the real puzzle is why you would pay $97 for a shirt.

not really, you still borrowed two $50 dollar bills to begin with...

the dollar you keep is throwing people off...it should not be added to what you owe. for example, if i borrow 10 dollars from you and keep a dollar for myself and use the rest... i still owe YOU ten dollars, me keeping the dollar doesnt affect what i borrowed so really the math should look like this:

49 (owed to mom) + 49 (owed to dad) + 1 (paid back to mom) + 1(paid back to dad)


= 100 (full amount borrowed)
