    Answer:

    Each person pays $8

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The entire sum must be divided by 4.

    “three appetizers that cost $8 each”: 3 * 8

    “two desserts that cost $4 each”: 2 * 4

    The total cost is 3 * 8 + 2 * 4

    Now you must divide the entire sum by 4, so if you write it in a single line, you must use parentheses.

    (3 * 8 + 2 * 4)/4 =

    = (24 + 8)/4

    = 32/4

    = 8

    Using fractions, it looks like this:

     \dfrac{3 \times 8 + 2 \times 4}{4} =

     = \dfrac{24 + 8}{4}

     = \dfrac{32}{4}

     = 8

    The important lesson from this is that a fraction line is a division but it also means that the numerator must be calculated first, then the denominator must be calculated too, then you divide. When you do not write it as a fraction, but instead, you write in a single line, you must use parentheses where appropriate.

    Answer:

    Step-by-step explanation:

    You and your friends = 4

    Appetizers = 8*3 $ (3 appetizers)

    Deserts = 4*2 $ (2 deserts)

    Bill = 8*3 + 4*2

    = 24 + 8

    = 32 $

    Each pays equally

    = 32 / 4. ( 4 people are there)

    = 8

    So, you and your friends need to pay 8$ each to pay bill
