can anyone genius out there answer this?

you want to buy a shirt worth 97 bucks (just for example) , but you dont have any money. you borrowed 50 bucks from ur mom and 50 from your dad. so now you bought the shirt and you have a change of 3 bucks. you gave back \$1 to your mom and \$1 to your dad. So now you owe your mom and dad 49 bucks…. and you have \$1 left to yourself.

here’s the iq test:

to solve this all, if you add your debts to your mom and dad, you would have 98 bucks (49+49) and when you add the \$1 left to you, you would have 99 bucks……..

where did the \$1 go?

isnt it, it’s supposed to be 100?

\$97.00 (one shirt) + \$1.00 (to Dad) + \$1.00 (to Mom) + \$1.00 to you = \$100.00

It’s apples and oranges. The 2 debts are debts. The \$1 is an ASSET, as is the shirt, worth \$97. So Debts = \$98 and Assets = \$98 (\$97+\$1).

Since this \$1 is part of your origional \$100 loan, you wouldn’t add it to the debt, you would subtract it (\$98 – \$1 = \$97) because you could further pay down your debt with it, as if you were to repay each parent \$1.50 (\$100 – \$3 = \$97)

Initially:

Mom = \$50

You = \$0

After borrowing:

Mom = \$0

You = \$100

Mom = \$0

You = \$3 + \$97/shirt

After repaying:

Mom: \$1

You: \$1 + \$97/shirt

As you can see, in each phase there is a total net worth of \$100.

The \$1 you have left should be SUBTRACTED from your debt to see your net, not added.

This is a common word problem scheme trying to confuse the math, but in actuality if you keep track of signs, it’s not difficult to see. You have \$98 of debt which yields you \$1 and a shirt worth \$97.

Best of luck!

You paid your Mom \$1, but you still owe her \$49. That equals \$50. You paid your Dad \$1, but you still owe him \$49. That’s another \$50. 50+50=100. Good question.

The 98 is your debt you should substract your asset of \$1 to get \$97… If you want to get back to the \$100 count the dollar paid to mom and the dollar paid to day and the dollary you have.

You got to do accounting and/or math correctly to get the correct answer.

your math is wrong you would subtract the dollar not add leaving you with \$97 the total cost of the shirt. The dollar would also be split in half and you would owe each parent 1.50

If you paid 97 dollars for the shirt, you have three dollars left. It doesn’t matter that you borrowed \$50.00 from your parents. You still have 3 dollars left. You should give them \$1.50 each and not \$1.00 each. If you gave them \$1.00 each, you still have \$.50 + \$.50 left.

How’d you get 99? o.0

49 + 49 = 98

plus the one you have yourself .. but then you gave two to your parents, which would mean you had 101 to start with?
