Received this forwarded email this morning. Figured I'd share it. Since it was written in Tagalog, I've translated it to English. LOL didn't know if it gave justice to the joke... :-)
Where'd the peso go?
There's this great shirt in a department store worth Php
97.00. You've no money so you borrwed Php 50.00 from your best
friends and another Php 50.00 from your sister. How much do you
have now? (ans: Php 100.00)
You bought the T-Shirt. How much is your change? (ans: Php
You returned Php 1.00 to your best friend, how much do you still owe him?
(ans: Php 49.00)
The other peso, you returned to your sister, how much do you still owe your
sister? (ans: Php 49.00)
You have Php 1.00 left. Now think... 49 + 49 ? (ans: 98) + Php
1.00 that's left? (ans: 99) Where'd the other peso
go? Let's analyze this:
You owe your best friend Php 49.00 plus the Php 1.00 returned equals Php 50.00; You owe your sister Php 49.00 plus the Php 1.00 returned equals Php 50.00.
50 + 50 ? (ans: 100) plus the peso that's left with you (ans: 101)
Why do you have an extra peso?
