Alrighty this one should give ya a headache.
Here it goes:

You saw a shirt for $97

You didn't have the cash so you asked your mom for $50, and you asked your dad for $50.

$50+$50=$100

You bought the shirt and had $3 change.

You gave you dad $1, and your mom $1, and you kept one $1 for yourself. Now you owe your mom $49 and you owe your dad $49.

$49+$49=$98+ Your $1=$99

Where is the missing $1. May the headaches and frustrations begin.

I had to google the answer lol Xd

Shirt cost 97$ paid 100$
Change 3$

Paid parents a dollar each
49$+49$ = 98 subtract the dollar you kept

So 98-1 = 97$ shirt

97$ shirt + 1$ = 98$
And the two dollars used to pay back some of the debt adds up to be 100$

Ah, congratulations. I was wondering how long it would be before someone would figure it out, I was just hoping the answer would not be googled :sweatdrop:

lol ur avatar has the mask of bane of TDKR...

and a question for u guys: Whats the percentage of u getting this right?
A) 25%
B) 50%
C) 75%
D) 25%
now here is the tricky part, since there are 4 choices, its 25%, but there r 2 25%'s, which makes it 50%, but then thats 3 and makes it 75%
