or slight less than $100, because non-realised profit is not stolen. loss is less $100, depending on profit on stolen goods

**Math student**

Unfortunatly 100$ is incorrect because since the guy buys stuff for 70$ the owner need to get 70$ in cash back after he gave him 30$ he lost 30$...

100-70=30

100-70=30

**Maths Student**

The answer is 100 dollars because the good are worth 70$ and the owner give back him the change which is 30$ so 70+30=100.....but also because the 100$ was stolen
