The waitress and the hostess at a restaurant share the tip at the end of every shift. Between the two of them they earn $95 in tips the waitress takes $55 and the hostess takes $40. If they continue to earn money at this rate, how much will the waitress receive if they earn $285 at the end of their next shift?

    \[\frac{55}{95}=\frac{x}{285}\]should do it

    solve via \[x=\frac{285\times 55}{95}\] and a calculator
