How much did I have?

Can you solve the above math brain teaser?

Check for the correct answer below...

__ANSWER__

The answer is $8

__Explanation__

In the question, the time of the tense is past. So actually how much money did he have before mom, dad, uncle, and aunt gave, which is $3 + $5 = $8

The time tense is also past tense in "I had $3.00 and " I had another 5" One could argue since you no longer have it How much you "have" Is only what your parents and uncle gave you. So how much you have is $140.00!
