 07-28-2007 #3 suesysgoddess Guest   Posts: n/a 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.

 07-28-2007 #5 CM J Guest   Posts: n/a 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...
