Ann, Barry, Charlene, Doug, Evelyn, and Fred went to lunch to celebrate Evelyn’s and Fred’s birthdays. Each person’s meal cost the same amount. Evelyn and Fred were being treated for their meals, but each was to chip in equally for his or her share of the other’s lunch. If the bill came to $54, how much should each person pay? 2.

So Evelyn and Fred pay nothing. That leaves all $54 to be paid by the other 4 people, thus each remaining person paid$54/4 = \$12.50.
