The is no extra dollar. You added the wrong numbers together to get $98 because there are really 2 extra dollars. $97 for the shirt + the $1 you kept = $98 The 2 extra dollars went back to your parents.

You just cannot add up their loss and your gain, you have to equate it. Their loss is $98 and your gain is $97+$1=$98. So there is no dollar lost here.

you had to give your moms 1.50 and you dads 1.50 so you owe both of them 48.50... so that 97 dollars you owe in total... that evens out to 100... since u kept 50 cents from both... 49 is owed to mom, 49 is owed to dad, you already payed them 2 dollars so that evens out to 100... the change in your pocket has nothing to do with the overall payment

your math is off because you're not counting the change, you're just counting dollar amounts

49+49 is what you owe your parents. Adding that dollar back into the equation is wrong you would subtract it if you gave it back to them. You already paid them two dollars, so if you gave that $1 back to them ($.50 a piece) you will only owe them $97 which is the price of the shirt.

97$ / 2 = 48.50$, then give em back the 1$ each = 49.50$ x 2 = 99$...













and then there was 1$...


Have a nice... euhhmmmm nothing for that 1$.

Some of the explanations here are convoluted. The riddle works because the logic is sound until the end of the final sentence, at which point the reader is focused on a distracting detail like the cost of the shirt, so is thus liable to overlook the error in a leap of faith.

Forget the cost of the shirt. You owe $100, but give back $2. The $98 takes into account the dollar you took for yourself. There is absolutely no logic behind adding another $1 at the end; you should be adding the $2 that you gave back to your parents to make up the sum of $100.


Edit -
Correct summary : $49 + $49 = $98 + $2 you gave back = $100

you had no money. the $100 was your parents. you got $3 back but decided to keep a $1 like a snake and give your parents $1 each...either way your parents are retarded for helping you get a shirt that was $97

seems simple but the math there doesnt look right

they gave him 100 dollar for a 97 dollar shirt...leaving 3 remaining dollars. gave one to each parent them himself, thats 3. add that to the 97 dollar shirt you have your 100
