Anne owes Bob $4, Bob owes Carol$3, and Carol owes Anne $5. If Carol settles all the debts by giving money to both Anne and Bob, how much will she give Anne?

Carol owes Anne so she'll "help" Anne pay Bob ...instead of 4 as the debt, she pays Bob only 1 coz Bob owes her 3. still does Carol have to pay Anne 1.
