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

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