    for this one you can write an equation so you know you have 8 people, and each of them are paying some amount of money, let that amount of money = x, so than you have 8 people paying x or 8x and you know that the number is equal to $1824 then you just write the equation so 8x=1824 and solve

    8x = 1824 it's just saying that x is how much money each of the 8 people will spend
