I have pretty strong math skills, but this one took me a while.

You want to buy something for $97, but need to borrow money.

Friend A gives you $50 and Friend B gives you $50. You buy the item, and get back $3 in change.

You give Friend A and Friend B $1 back each, and you keep the other $1

You now owe Friend A and Friend B $49 each plus the $1 you kept, the total is $49 + $49 + $1 = $99

Where did the other $1 go?

There is no other dollar. The money you owe A and B is 98 bucks total. You already gave them 2 bucks. 98+2 is 100 bucks. :?: :?:


I think it's all in the wording.

Spoiler:

the point is: You have to come to $97,-. So You have to say 49 + 49 -1 = 97
