You borrowed $100, the shirt was $97, you gave them back $2, so you owe $98, he kept the extra $1, if you add the shirt you get $100.

If you subtract the $1 that he kept, then you get the $97 that he spent, or you add it to what he gave them it would be $48.50x2= $97.

Im dying from some of these responses you n*ggas really cant be serious.

Did you guys not read what it said?

You gave your day $1 and you mom $1 and kept the other $1 for yourself. Now you owe your mom $49 and your dad $49.

$49+$49=$98 + your $1 = $99

This equation does not work at all! People in here really trying to solve this.

$100-$97=$3 , $3 in your pocket. $100+$3=$100 (duh?)

You cant add the parents equation into this and expect to get $100 out of $98 + $1 and expect to get $100.

Are you guys serious? There is no "missing dollar."

Look at it like this:
1) You borrow $100.00.
2) You buy a $97.00 shirt and get back $3.00.
3) Now you have $100.00 on you ($97 Shirt + $3 Change) and you still owe your parents $100.00.
3) You give them back $1.00 each.
4) So now you have $98.00 on you ($97 Shirt + $1 you kept for yourself) and now you owe them $98.00.

The equation in the given picture is wrong and doesn't match up with the problem.

The other dollar is the 50 cent that you have to account for.

97 divided by 2 is $48.50 not $49.00 so you wouldn't of owed them that after you gave them $1.00 and thats how they confuse you by telling you now you owe them $49.00

Problem solved.

its not a math problem its a logic problem...the logic is that none of the money is yours so by keeping a $1 for yourself and giving them each $1, u still owe them both $49...

if you give them $1.50 each and you keep nothing then you still owe them $48.50 which equals the $97 spent on the shirt.

i'm pretty sure this problem is a brain teaser and not meant to be taken as a legit math problem like people are treating it.

Dude just give back the dollar you took from each of the hundred dollar amounts, the cost of the shirt is irrelevant.

since u kept a dollar (which means u're keeping $0.50 from each parent), the total u give back to ur parents should now equal $99

99/2 = 49.50

so since u already gave them $1 each, u still owe them 48.50 which then gives them 49.50

49.50+49.50=99

+ the dollar u kept = 100

there is no missing dollar... the shirt was 97 and 3 left over. of the 3 left one went to you, your mom, and your dad. but more importantly, who TF spends $97 on a SHIRT???
