You saw a shirt for £97. You didn't have the cash, so you borrowed £50 from your mom and £50 from your dad = £100. You bought the shirt.and had £3 change. You gave your dad £1 and your 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. Wheres the missing £1?
If anyone could answer this, it's killing my brain.
The pound isn't there to make 100, the pound is between the 97 and the 98.
As in you both gave your parents the £1, but you then minus your £1 that you kept for yourself, you don't add it on. So you actually go from 98-1, there is no missing pound because your end number becomes £97 (being the price of your shirt) with £1 to each person left including yourself.
Old skool riddle, but the answer is...
£49 you owe your mom, £49 you owe your dad = £98
The £1 you already paid your mom back
The £1 you already paid your Dad back
£100, what you originally borrowed!
The euro you kept yourself, was still borrowed, so you still had to pay back
£49 to mom, £49 to dad = £97 value of shirt + £1 value of coin in your pocket
