i wanted to buy a shirt for $97 but i had no cash. I borrowed $50 from my mom and $50 dollars from my dad. 50plus 50 equals 100 I bought the shirt and got three dollars change. I gave my mom a dollar and my dad a dollar and I kept a dollar for myself. I now owe my dad $49 and my mom $49. 49 plus 49= 98 plus the dollar I kept is 49. where is the missing dollar?

it's in your pocket. You only borrowed $98, and you have a $97 shirt and $1 cash.
