the shirt problem:

its all good, till the last equation. the last equation is assuming you're trying to add up to the original 100. that is not true. the 49 and the 49 are portions of your remaining debt. all that was spent however was 97. therefor, the last equation should be adding up to 97; the total of your debt. it should read, (49 + 49) - 1 = 97. you still owe 49 to each parent, and you have a dollar left over that should be going towards reducing that debt, therefore it should be subtracted, to equal the actual debt total; the cost of the shirt 97. the logic behind the last equation in the paragraph is faulty. thats all :)
User avatar #90 to #59 - loewenstern (08/17/2011) [-]
Therefore, after the one dollar was handed out to each parent, you would give 49,50 to each of them.
User avatar #341 to #90 - NoCold (08/17/2011) [-]
<3 to all of ya :)

to #90, also not true. if youve already given $1 to each parent, then give them $49.50 each, the total you've paid will be $50.50 each or $101 total. You're still giving them $49 each, the remaining dollar is just what you have left to start paying them off. If you were to split that remaining dollar and pay them as much as you can right off the bat, you would give them an additional $0.50 each and your remaining debt will be $48.50 to each parent.

You owe $49 to your mom and $49 to your dad making it $98, now you have one dollar, you can use that one dollar to pay your mom so now you owe her $48. So in fact you owe a total of $97 dollars (the cost of the t-shirt)

The shirt costs $97
Dad gave you $50.
Mom gave you $50.
You now owe them 100.
You bought the ******* expensive shirt $100-$97 = $3.
You payed your parents 2% of what you owed them ($1).
You now owe them $49 each.

There's no missing dollar, because you payed the shop $97/$100, and that's the money you owe, that money doesn't ******* exist.

User avatar #543 to #529 - justinml (08/18/2011) [-]
but if it did exist, that 49+49= 98 +1 = 99 where'd 1 go, 1 of your parents, or you still has it.
User avatar #532 to #529 - cakezs (08/18/2011) [-]
It's not missing. The equation $49 + $49 = $98 is true because you already paid them each $1, which equals $2, and $98 + $2 = $100.

wtf im a retard i still dont get it
User avatar #556 to #532 - ValorWolfe (08/18/2011) [-]
But then wouldn't there be an extra dollar? Because you still have one from before...

**** I wish I knew math.
#566 to #556 - John Cena (08/18/2011) [-]
There is no extra dollar. He borrowed 100 dollars and payed back 2 dollars. He still has to pay back 98 dollars more. 2 + 98 = 100 .

If he gives the one dollar in his wallet to either parent, the then has paid three dollars back and owes 97 more. 97 + 3 = 100

tl:dr = money in wallet doesn't matter. 2 (paid back) + 98 (owed) = 100 dollars

First of all, i have two statements for this shirt thing.
1. The one doller is in the shirt (if that makes sence)
And 2. WHO THE HELL BUYS A SHIRT THAT COST $97?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

User avatar #548 to #529 - davidp (08/18/2011) [-]
you subtract your one from the debt, not add it, which makes the $97 you spent on the shirt that you will probably only wear once.
User avatar #549 to #529 - junaidman (08/18/2011) [-]
actually you sir are completely right, the only reason there seems to be a missing dollar is because of how you phrase the riddle. if you phrase it like the picture had, then there is a missing dollar. Just saying if any confusion

yeah but because it says $98 plus the $1 you kept comes to $99 plus the $2 you already gave to them, so actually there's $101

About the $97 shirt one:

The $98 (49+49) is a debt. The $1 you have is an asset
$98-1 = $97, which is the value of the shirt.

In other words, you should not be adding the $1 asset you have to the $98 debt you have. You should add it to the shirt value:
$97 shirt + $1 change = $98 debt to parents.

"You gave your dad $1 and your mom $1"

That leaves $49 debt to each of them. $98 total.
User avatar #440 to #435 - nsizzle (08/18/2011) [-]
The two $1 he returned to his parents reduces the debt from $100 to $98.

You give them each a dollar back tho.

97+ 2 for each parent and + 1 yours=100, yes but the post says one is missing and im just saying y it is: 97 div 2 is 48.5 not 48

User avatar #16 to #15 - ironlion (08/17/2011) [-]
let me explain. The equation is a fail .

Because you paid 97$ you have 3 left. So you give your mom, your dad and you keep 1$.

So 100 - 97=3$.

You owe your mom 49$ and your dad 49$. Thats 98. MINUS the one dollar you have ( why? because you dont owe it to yourself.) Thats 97. The one "missing dollar" is a fail of the equation.

exactly. it doesnt make sense to add the debts into the same equation as your own money. another version of this riddle is the 3 guys 1 hotel room riddle. (no, it is not a porno. search it up.)
User avatar #76 to #16 - ningyoaijin (08/17/2011) [-]
Actually, it does work out.

You initially take $50 from each parent. And each parent pays for half the price of the shirt, which is 97/2 = $48.50, to each. Once you pay back $1, you now owe $47.50 to each parent. You still have the $0.50 you kept from each, so you owe an additional $0.50 to each, so it works out as $48 each, which is $96 in total that you now owe.

he paid 97$ ,so you wanna try and get to 97 and not a 100.  
and that last 1$ you kept for yourself is a minus and not a plus.  
so 98 -1 = 97
