Adding what you owe and what you have is meaningless. (Suppose you have £25 in your wallet and you owe someone £50. What possible meaning does the amount £75 have? None.)

All that this sentence means is that you owe a total of £98 and you only have £1 left to pay that debt. You're going to have to come up with another £97 before you can pay back Mom and Dad in full.
