These are two separate transactions that are being mixed up.First the purchase of the blouse:The blouse cost 97 pesos with 3 pesos of change. (sum of 100 pesos)Then the lending of the money:You were loaned 98 pesos, the extra 2 pesos are still in your friend's pockets. (sum = 100 pesos)You are trying to add the cost of the blouse to the peso in your pocket and these two quantities are not related.
