/ Calling all you Genius's! - Answer this!
The shirt is worth £97, and you have £1, therefore you have assts of £98. You owe £98. No problem.
You owe you M and D 49+49=98 as you already paid them each 1. The 1 that is yours is what you borrowed originally and so is included in the 98 not in addition to. 98 = 97 you spent and the 1 you pocketed.
Don't buy a £97 shirt is the obvious answer.
The shirt cost them £98 - not £97 - because you kept £1 for yourself.
So if you give them back £1 in change, then you owe them each £49.
Is the thread title meant to be ironic?
I bought two fingers of fudge and a Snickers with it
You borrowed £100, £50 from each. The shirt cost £97. You then give your parents 1/2 the price of the shirt each = £48.5 + £1 each from the change = £49.5 each x2 = £99 + the £1 you kept = £100 so nothing happened to "the other £1".
By putting the values on the wrong side of the equation doesnt equal the same result.. Sorry I wish it was that easy
