I borrowed P50 (fifty pesos) from Jacob and another P50 (fifty pesos) from Ronald, so that would gave me a total of P100 (one hundred pesos) borrowed money. Now, I went to the Mall and bought a t-shirt worth P97 (ninety seven pesos) , the cashier gaved me P3 (three pesos) change.

Thinking that I could lessen my debt a bit from Jacob and Ronald, I came up an idea to return P1 (one peso) to each of them as my advance pay. What's left on me now is only P1 (one peso) , since I returned them P1 (one peso) each. For this, my debt would now be reduced to only P49 (fourty nine pesos) to both of them.

Adding the two P49 (fourty nine pesos) would amount to P98 (ninety eight pesos) as my new debt total. If I add the P1 (one peso) left from me then that would make P99 (ninety nine pesos), the question now "where have the 1 peso gone?" to justify the total of P100 (one hundred pesos) I borrowed from them a while back. What do you think have the P1 (one peso) gone?

hmmm.. another triva question huh...??? i leave the floor for ronald and jigs to answer your questions eric....

ReplyDeletehave a nice day ahead

@darlyn

ReplyDeleteit seems your busy down there lol hehe ^_^

wow this question stuns me. i think your doing the wrong math Eric.maybe you have spent the 1 peso eating isaw or something. or you have just bought a yosi at the kanto and forgot about it. if this problem bothers you a lot i'll just send you a peso for you to solve your prob. ok? ehehehe pag sure oi!

ReplyDeleteHahaha tricky nga question! actually wala nawala ang 1. Ang question mao nag palibog.

ReplyDeletediba nag bayad ka og 1 kada isa..

ang utang nimo sa ila 49 nlng...

tag 97 mn ang t-shirt so 49x2=98

natural ang piso naa ra sa imo

98-97 = 1...wala siya nawala naa ra sa imo

dili na kinahanglan i addd sa 98 ang piso kay wala na mana labot sa utang...isa pa lahi2 nga tao imong nautangan...

lisod e explain...pero basta in-ana...

Ang pangutana gyud mao ni "Unsay brand sa t-shirt ric? unsa pud klase nga color?

Asa mn nimo gipalit? sa mall sa kilid lng ba? kinsay kauban nimo ato nga time? unsa name sa cashier nga nag sensenlyo? gwapa ba siya? unsa pud ka oras nka uli sa inyo balay? pag abot nimo duna bay pagkaon nga nka andam?

@jigs

ReplyDeleteyeah that question really stuns big time dude lols. you have a point there jigs, it's possible that i've bought a yosi at the kanto but that doesn't convinced me enough because the price of yosi now is P2/stick and isaw i guess it's P3 or more nowadays hehehe ^_^

@jacob

ReplyDeletewow amazing! brilliant jud kaau ka ug arithmetic cob da! perfect kaau ang explaination with supporting calculation pa hehehe. posible kaau na imong tubag cob ky maskin ako wla man gud ko kabalo sa answer ani ky dli motug-an tong nagtrivia sa akoa ani, basig wla pod cguro to kabalo sa answer ba haha. mao nagpost ko ani ky gusto pod ko mkabalo sa inyong mga ideas hehehe. actually kanang gi answer nimo nga 98-97=1 mao pod na akong gi answer sa iya pero ingon xa dli daw na mao ang answer hehe, ambot unsa answer ani murag tama jud cguro ta duha sa atong answer hehe ^_^

wahaha ang piso?

ReplyDeletekabalo ko asa ang piso

naa sa akoa ang piso

gi patago ni Lemonsito

(^_^) joke

tama c jacob... ang question mao nagpalibog... mao ni akong pagka math... hehehe...

ReplyDelete97 ang tshirt.

97 divided by 2 = 48.5 (mao na ang nagasto sa tag 50 na borrowed nmo)

nya naa ka kambyo 3. bayad nmo ang 1 balik.

so 48.5 plus 1 = 49.5

49.5 times 2 = 99

99 + 1 (sa imo) = 100

sakto ba? pagshur oi! hehehe

@james roy labrador

ReplyDeletehahaha ayaw ibuking james ^_^ ok pod imong justification da! ayos, dghan nako nakuha idea dri kng unsaon jud pag explain kng asa ang piso hehehe ^_^

Total amount = 100

ReplyDelete49 + 49 = 98 -->Remaining debt after the 2 piso was paid back.

I want to prove that the piso could be in your pocket by assuming to cut 1 piso to 100 from the cash in hand and put it in your pocket.

Therefore,,,cash in hand= 99

Cash on pocket = 1 piso

---------------

100

Buying the tshirt given the cash in hand(99Php):

99-97= 2

Paying 1 piso each:

2-2 = 0 Cash in hand.

But the cash in the pocket is still 1 piso.

Isn't it magic? No it is just an illusion. There are illusions in mathematics that only the rules of Math can prove it wrong.LOL.

This is also a good example of "mathematical illusion".

@ronald

ReplyDeletewow very well said dude! ^_^ your explaination here was one of a kind, you really are a math wiz ronald. you're idea was brilliant! ^_^

I also came across with this question before. Di ko rin to kaya sagutin dati. Haha. I'll ask my friends about this as too.
