Question

You and three friends go to a restaurant for dinner. You share three appetizers that cost $8 each. You also share two desserts that cost$4 each. You split the total bill evenly. Write an expression to find the amount each person paid. Then find out how much each person paid.

Find the error:
3×8+2×4/4 (divided by 4)
= 24 + 8/4
=24 + 2
=26
Each person pays $26 Need an answer ASAP!!! 0 ## Answers ( No ) 1. 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:    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.

Appetizers = 8*3 $(3 appetizers) Deserts = 4*2$ (2 deserts)
= 32 $Each pays equally = 32 / 4. ( 4 people are there) = 8 So, you and your friends need to pay 8$ each to pay bill
