Default Brain tease WHERE DID THE 1$ GO?

So you see this nice shirt, it costs 97$.... You don't have the money to buy it.....(people if you don't have the money to buy a 97$ shirt please don't borrow money for it) So you decide to borrow money from your parents!

Your dad gives you 50$ and then your mom gives you another 50$. Nice, now you have 100$ and you go and buy your shirt.

You bought your shirt, now you have 3 dollars change.

You decide to give your dad 1$ back and your mother a dollar back.... you keep the extra dollar.

Now you owe your mother and father 49$ each.......

49+ 49 = 98 + the dollar you kept....99? where did the other 1$ go?

Well I posted a question asking what happened to the dollar of the math formula I used, you did your own formula which didn't answer the question.

$97 for the shirt and $1 for ebay fees, plus asking your parents for another $4 to cover the shipping (because you forgot to uncheck the free shipping tab ), $5 for paypal fees and now you're negative - $10 in fees a have no money at all and broker than you originally started!

Instant limitation by paypal.



Value of shirt =$97.00
Funds from parents= $98.00 ( or $49.00 per parent).
Funds kept in your pocket = the supposed missing money.

Fee for solving this = $100.
No paypal accepted.

HAHAHA I got the answer with an explanation

a=b

a^2-b^2=ab-b^2

(a+b)(a-b)=b(a-b)

a+b=b

a+a=a

2a=a

2=1

1+1=3

I'm AWESOME!
