    Birthday Lunch

    Ann, Barry, Charlene, Doug, Evelyn, and Fred went to lunch to celebrate Evelynís and Fredís birthdays. Each personís 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 otherís lunch. If the bill came to $54, how much should each person pay?

    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.
