    Okay. A man has 50 dollars in the bank.

    He takes out 20 leaving 30
    he takes out 15 leaving 15
    he takes out 9 leaving 6
    he takes out 6 leaving 0.
    ____ _____

    50 51

    Where does the extra dollar come from.


    Please tell me. This fucked up my brain.

    the extra dollar comes out because you went and counted down to zero while on the other side you didnt. i win. and if this doesnt make sense, it does to me so i still win.

    you're adding your balances together, that doesn't work. all you have to be concerned with is what you took out the same as what you put in, that's all.
