    Okay, so first, state your givens: - We know there are going to be 8 people eating dinner, they are going to split (or divide) the bill amoungst them evenly. - We know the food costs $156 - We know the tip is going to be $30. Now, we want to combine, or put together, in parenthesis the number that are similar. $156 and $30 are similar because they both have the "$." Combining these numbers will give us the overall amount due at checkout. Then, simply divide that amount by 8 to represent the 8 people dinning. Do you see which answer matches this statement?
