@OpenStudier0 do you know you are given that the each person should spend C=a/n
where a how much the tv is
and n is the number of people
?
And you are asked to find a when C is 179.6 and n is 5?

you plug these in
C=a/n
179.6=a/5
solve for a

I think it would be D, not sure. Just round it up. If everyone spent around let's say 200.
200x5=1000
So rounding it up 1000 is closest to 900. D would be your answer.
