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.

you need to click reply with quote to fully understand what hes trying to say, at least i did anyway. he adds up all the money left in the bank and it adds to 51 and adds all the money taken out which adds to 50.

 

the problem is that adding up the amount which is left after every deposit shouldnt add up to anything in particular. adding the money which was taken out, should add to 50. its basically just a coincidence that it even landed on 51. where it got tricky is that when he took out 9, it left the 'leaving' section with 6, which is the only number in the group not a factor of 5. making it impossible to get a 50 with all the other numbers being factors of 5. had he taken out 10 and had 5 left it would work. but thats just coincidence pretty much.

 

although it is 2am and i could be wrong.

try the other column

 

hes not adding to 51 and getting the wrong amount.

hes adding to 51 in the remaining balance column and getting 50 in the withdrawal column which is confusing.

yes... the two lines and then 50 51 doesnt make any sense when you see it on the page because it comes out different on the page then it does in the box when you're typing it (which is how you'll see it if you quote the post). for anyone who hasnt caught on, its supposed to have two columns, one with the number withdrawn and one with the amount left after the withdrawl... and at the bottom theres a line under the withdrawl one and 50 underneath--thats what the numbers in the column add up to-- and one under the money left after withdrawl column, with 51--thats how much that side adds up to.

 

just spelling it out for anyone who still doesnt get it.. withdrawl fees have nothing to do with it, the point is why dont the columns add up.. i also think its just a coincidence the other one came to 51... or it has something to do with the difference between adding and subtracting... well obviously but yeah... thbpt.
