    You have to purchase a new fx pedal.
    It costs $ 97.00
    You pick $ 50.00 from your mother and $ 50.00 from your father.
    You pay the fx pedal, and you have $ 3.00 back.
    You give $ 1.00 to your mom, $ 1.00 to your dad and you keep $ 1.00 for you.
    So your mom paid $ 49.00 for your fx pedal and your father paid $ 49.00
    49+49+1=99...where the F' did a dollar end up?
    Guitarists don't do math. ;)

    Borking the math up, aren't we?
    (parent:parent:you:shop)
    Each parent paid 50$. 100$ total, or 50:50:0:0.
    Now balance is -50:-50:100:0.
    Pedal goes in; -50:-50:3:97
    Ofc, you return some funds. -49:-49:1:97
    There we go; parents are down 98$, recipients are up 98$. :cool:

    You didn't pay a dollar, you took it, so it doesn't belong on that side of the equation.

    Your parents each paid $49, the pedal cost $97 and you took a dollar

    49 + 49 = 97 + 1

    It's just dividing parts into positive and negative sums on the balance sheet. It gets really weird when you say 97=99, which doesn't make sense. Money doesn't just disappear. Creative bookkeeping makes money disappear.

    I had to deal with stuff like this for way too long. :lol:

    It will never add up because the case tricks you by confusing cost with asset.
    49(Mom's expense)+49(dad's expense)+1(asset) = wtf

    In terms of cost (who paid money) ; Mom 50 + Dad 50 + You 0 = 100$
    In terms of asset (value) ; Pedal 97 + Mom change 1 + Dad change 1 + Your change 1 = 100$

    :metal:

    Are you addressing me or the other guy? :lol: I never said 97 = 99.

    Shh, that's how I skim off the top. That's how I make my living, outside of making paid advertisements.
