From father =50

From mother =50

Cost =97

Balance =3

You have given back $1 to father

You have given back $1 to mother

Balance=1

You have effectively borrowed $49 from your father and $49 from your mother

Your Borrowing =$98

Product cost $97

Balance you kept =$1 with you.

(100 will not come into picture at all)
