anonymous one year ago 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

2. anonymous

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

3. anonymous

Would that be 165?
