Help Me Solve a Riddle
You saw a shirt for 97\$.

You don't have the cash. So you borrowed 50\$ from your mom and 50\$ from your Dad.

50 + 50= 100

you bought the shirt, and had 3\$ change.
You give your mom a 1\$ and your dad 1\$ and keep the other dollar for yourself.

49 + 49= 98+ your 1\$= \$99
Where is the missing \$1?

Why are you counting owed money with money you have? Those two are totally different.
