Q:
The waitress and hostess at a restaurant share the tips at the end of every shift. Between the two of them, they earn an average of $95 in tips. The waitress takes $55, and the hostess takes $40.

If they continue to earn money at this rate, how much will the waitress receive if they earn $285 at the end of their next shift?
A.
$120
B.
$145
C.
$165
D.
$205

A: 55:40 = 11:8, so $285 divided with the ration 11:8 would be $165:$120, with the waitress receiving C. $165
