Default Mathematics Question plz help^^?

you went to a super market together with ur friends just to see whats sale and u saw a blouse which is only 97 pesos but u dont have money. u borrow 50 pesos on ur friend and u borrow 50 pesos again from one of ur friends with a total of 100 pesos. u already bought the blouse which is 97 pesos. u had the 3 pesos which was the change. u gave 1 peso to one who lended you 50 pesos and u gave also 1 peso to the person u borrowed 50 pesos. both of them has 1 peso each so ur debt for both of them is only 49-49 a total of 98 pesos and u had one peso left a total of 99 pesos. where did the 1 peso go? in order to get the 100 pesos?

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.

And if they each give you back the 2 pesos, the 98 becomes 100, and now you have 1 extra!

You cannot add the 1 peso remaining to the 98 they lent you. Actually you take away 1 peso from the 98 they lent you , and that will give you the amount of 97 pesos you paid for the blouse...
