Okay, so my brain is incredibly small and I need you sherbros to help me out. I deposited $500 USD into a betting website. That means $500 came out of my bank account. I bet $500 on Dustin, Perry, and Allen to win $782. My brother messages me and says he will buy $250 of my $500 bet. My brother also owes me $250 for a computer desk I bought him. My brother NEVER sends me $250 for half of the $500 bet. We win the bet. My brother thinks I owe him $141 which would be 1282 / 2 - 500 (the money he owes me for bet and table) = $141. Isn't he only entitled to half of the winnings and not half of the total amount of money? So it should be 782/2 = 391 - 250 = 141 - 250 for the computer table = -109? What am I missing? Why do I feel like I got scammed. Please help.
