What's the difference between euer, ihr, and dein?

I've getting a little confused. :/

euer can mean yours (plural) as in "this is your (=y'all's ^^) car" = "das ist euer auto". euer is the possessive pronoun for the second person plural (when you talk to a group of people and say to them that they have such and such, then you'd use euer).

ihr has several meanings. the most important one is: you (informal plural, and outdated formal singular (nowadays formal singular is "Sie"). ihr basically means y'all. it can also be the female singular possessive pronoun as in "her house" = "ihr haus"

dein is informal singular possessive, as in "your house" = "dein haus".

hope that's not too confusing

that depends on the noun coming after the possessive pronoun. If it's feminine then it's "ihre" or "deine" and if it's masculine then it's "Ihr" or "dein"

Ihr: (formal) your ihr: you (plural), hers, theirs

Interesting profile picture. While everybody trying to demote, you prefer to promote cigarettes. This being on an educational site is particularly ironic.
