Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I assume the $180 is being split 50/50. In this case, let x=180, the amount to be split. For your friend, it would be 0.5x15. For you, it would be 0.5x+15.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is the way I look at the problem. Let x = your share Then x15 = friend's share x + (x15) = 180 x + x  15 = 180 2x  15 = 180 2x = 195 x = $97.50 This is your share x  15 = $97.50 15 = $82.50 This is friend's share Therefore, you receive $97.50 and your friend receives $82.50
