    Splitting a gift and dividing in half -

    I feel so foolish but need help.
    Barbara paid $199 towards a gift
    Ann paid 65 dollars towards that same gift so the total of the gift was 264 dollars
    They want to split the bill, so if Barbara paid more, what does Ann owe her?
    Thank you -

    $\dfrac{264}{2}=132$

    $132-65 = 67$

    Ann must pay Barbara $67
