there is no "other pound"-its just a mathematical paradox created by mixing additions and multiplications to make it appear that way-there are many variations on this puzzle.its just a trick,so there is no answer-simples.

Why are you giving 24 back. You spent 47 so 23.50 each + 1 each is 49 plus 1 for the beggar = 50

The 'missing' pound is in the £48 you're paying back to your friends as you spent £47 + £1 for the beggar leaving just the two pounds you've already paid back.

you borrowed 50 you paid each mate £1 back already so you owe each one £24
