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 :)

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.

Let's use our logic here shall we?
Let's say this is a boy who wants this shirt, well, what guy would buy a 97$ shirt.
So it's not a guy
So it's obviously a girl right?
Now the real question here is, WHAT THE **** IS SHE DOING OUT OF THE KITCHEN

Bitch please.. 49+49=98, those 2 dollars which u gave to your parents are the missing 2. Your dollar is from those 98 dollars because u spent 97 on the shirt..

Well, I'm going to try to explain the math one the best I can... When you start the problem, there's 100 dollars total in consideration: 50 from mom and 50 from dad. You spend 97 dollars out of the 100 on the shirt, leaving you with 3 dollars. After you give the 1 dollar to each mom and dad, combined with the one dollar you have and the 97 dollar value of the shirt, it still adds up to 100 dollars total. What you still owe the two parents has nothing to do with how much money they currently have. The last part is to just throw you off. Another way to interpret this is for 49 + 49 + your 1 = only 99. How much you currently owe them goes from zero to negative 100 before paying them each one dollar. You are going to owe 97 dollars by the end of the problem, because that's how much money was left over in this closed system. 49 + 49 + 1 = 97, how much you still are under for the shirt. I know, I know, tldr, but I did the problem out, so I'm going to post it goddamit!

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.
