You like to buy a pair of jeans for $97, but you dont have money. You borrowed from your friends, let's say friend A and friend B, $50 each. So you have $100 and decided to buy the pants. You have $3 left, right? You paid $1 each to your friends and you have $1 left. So you only have $49 credit each to your friends. If you add that it's $98 and you have $1 dollar left. So that's $99, right? Where did $1 go? Can you explain it.
