Totally confused! Where is the missing number?!
Can anyone help me answer this?..
You see a shirt for £97, but you don't have any money.
You borrow £50 from your mum, and £50 from your dad, so you have £100.
You buy the shirt, and have £3 change.
So you give your mum £1, your dad £1 and keep the other £1.
You now owe your mum £49 and your dad £49.
£49 + £49 = £98 and your £1 makes £99.
Where is the missing £1?
