Some different answers:

There wasnt 98 dollars in the envelope there was only the number 98 written on the envelope.
She could have been $90 less because the number 98 could also stand as the year or past year.
She was short 89$ an 11 cents because the number on the envelope stands for cents.

Some one stole 9 dollars
98 was the number of her room that the envelopr was to go to.
