Sami, Ben, and Louis went to lunch. Ben's meal cost $0.45 less than Sami's. Louis's meal cost twice as much as Ben's. If the bill came to$9.25, how much does each owe? s= Sami's share

Can anybody put this together and solve it?

Equation?

2. Ben's meal cost $0.45 less than Sami's. B = S - .45 Louis's meal cost twice as much as Ben's. L = 2B = 2(S - .45) the bill came to$9.25

S + B + L = 9.25

substitute for B and L, then solve for S ... finding B and L will then be easy.

3. I'm sorry but I did not understand B and L.

4. B = price of Ben's meal

L = price of Louis' meal
