I call it maths but others call it... but i want the answer any way you get it.

A white boy wanted to buy a short that cost 97$ but he had no money, so he borrowed 50$ from his mom and 5$ from his dad. he bought the short and was given 3$ as his change. coming back home he gave 1$ to his mom and 1$ to his dad and kept 1$ to himself. the boy was still owing the mom 49$ and the dad 49$ too. When you add the 49$ the boy was owing the mom and the one he was owing the dad and the one he kept to himself you will be having 99$. where is the other 1$

It's with you! I suppose he borrowed 50$ from his dad instead of 5$?
Physical money: 97 = 50+50-3
100 = (49+1) + (49+1)
The $1 that he is holding is part of that $98 that he still owed his parents.
