You are at a department store with your parents when you saw a $7 shirt. You asked your parents for money to buy the shirt. Your mom gave you $5 and your dad gave you another $5. Therefore, your change is $3.You gave $1 to your mom; $1 to your dad and $1 to yourself. Therefore, you're remaining loan to your mom is $4 and your dad $4 as well. Adding the two $4 will give you $8 and when added to the $1 you have, totals $9. Where did the $1 go? (This is similar to the missing dollar riddle)

you have $1 so you have $8 loan, you CANNOT ADD $1 on this $8 to get $9 ... so you can say that $1 is missing. It's because $8 is loan, i.e. -$8 and you have $1, it's +$1
