You want to buy candy at the store for 7 dollars, you borrow 5 dollars from your dad and 5 dollars from your mom. You buy your candy, and the cashier gives you 3 dollars in change. You need to pay your parents back, so you give one dollar to your mom, one dollar to your dad, and you keep the last dollar. Now you owe each parent 4 dollars. 4 plus 4 is 8, plus the one dollar you kept makes 9, but you got 10 dollars from both your parents. Where's the missing dollar?

there were no friends on the journey so the missing dollar is because the candy man should have given me 4 dollars instead! I was scammed!

no wait

After more than fifteen minutes of careful consideration, I realized that the dollar was the friends we made along the way all along.

You owe your parents 10 dollars. If you give each parent a dollar, you now owe your parents 8 dollars. 8 plus 1 is 9, that's true, but 9 dollars is not how much you owe your parents. Recall that you owe your parents 8 dollars. Use the dollar that you kept from earlier to help pay your debt to them. 8 minus 1 is 7, and 7 dollars is how much your candy cost you. You could return the candy and get 7 dollars to pay off your debt, or you could just wait until your parents forget about it.

What the- everywhere I turn I see kiriiya

Forget the dollar that you have left over. You only need to know that you owe each parent 4 dollars, no need to give anybody a headache.

You are re-tard?
