Ok first off half of 97 is 48.50 so when you give a dollar back to mom and dad you owe them 49.50 each and that other dollar makes sense then. 49.5 +49.5 = 99
5 years ago
98 is what you owe, but it's adding 1 dollar to what you owe for no reason
5 years ago
no 99 is what you owe, there is no missing dollar
5 years ago
lol. No. you owe 98 dollars, you have one dollar, you give it to oyur mum, and then you owe 97 dollars the exact price of the shirt. From what you are saying, If you give the 1 dollar left from the 100 dollars to your mum when you owe 99 dollars then you still owe 98 dollars when you only paid 97 for the shirt and have given 3 dollars already, because the extra dollar is added on for no reason.
5 years ago
just answer why are are you adding 1 dollar to 98?
5 years ago
yeah its asking 2 different questions, what you owe + what you have... dumb, but clever

yup exactly

somehow dug managed to perfectly rationalize himself out of a dollar

First off do you believe that the dollar just disappears ?? NO of course not. It is a trick question. Remember you had to multiply and divide before you add and subtract. There is where the questions throws you off. Anyhow you agree the shirt cost 97 so half of that was paid by mom and the other half by dad... half of 97 is 48.50 so when you get 3 bucks back one dollar to mom and one to dad they each paid 49.50. 49.50 times 2 is 99 dollars and you have the other dollar in your hand... 100 dollars all accounted for

I believe the term is fuzzy math.
5 years ago
oh yeah you're right, but it's telling you to add your 1 dollar to 98 to get 99, not, as you've said 1 dollar to 99 to get 100. The 99 in the question is a number based off of nothing
5 years ago
You owe 98 youve paid 2 not fuzzy.... you have one but thats a different question alltogether
5 years ago
kinda.... actually it is based on adding and subtracting before dividing or multiplying.... it is kinda confusing

What do mean, "you people?"
5 years ago
its not really about that at all...
its a zero sum calculation...
if you want something based off of adding before dividing or multiplying you want something like:
2 + 2 * 10 / 2 = 20
vs
10 / 2 + 2 + 2 = 9
which.. has absolutely nothing to do with this image ;/

1 dollar you gave to dad + 1 dollar you gave to mom + 1 dollar in your pocket + 97 bucks you need to come up with for the shirt you just bought = 100 bucks.

only a real douche-bag/asshole buys a single shirt for $97.

some people in chat awhile ago were trying to defend paying a few hundred dollars for a pair of jeans because they were brand name.. which made them 'better quality'

Bought a pair of $20 jeans and a pair of $50 jeans at the same time once. The $20 pair tore up and crapped out and are officially knock-around jeans and the other pair is still nice and crisp enough to where to work: you get what you pay for.

your 1$ is not yours since you borrowed it and still have to repay it..
no wonder america is fucking broke

0 + 100 - 97 - 2 - 1(when you pay them back) = 0

But the question is... how many mucho shirts?
5 years ago
money can't buy mucho shirts
5 years ago
neither can a subscription
5 years ago
technically, you should be able to get an old style shirt...they were excessively expensive, though.
5 years ago
good luck finding the link
5 years ago
fuck that, I wan't the one I already paid for that was meant to go with my subscription.
5 years ago
if only they would settle on a design...surely that is the only delay
5 years ago
one saying tits or get the fuck with the mucho logo and I'll happily pay twice
5 years ago
even a basic just the older mucho logo on a shirt (not the cyan logo) and I'd be happy. My next year subscription is depending on receiving last years deal clincher first. Just sayin'.
5 years ago
alas, the old link where you pretty much made your own shirt is gone forever.
