You can use proportions to figure the solution out. Here's how to do it:

When the waitress and hostess earn $95 in total, the waitress takes $55. Now we need to see how much she takes when the two of them earn $285. Here's how to set up the proportion:

Solution:

55:95 = x:285 (now you cross-multiply)

95x = 55*285

95x = 15,675

x = 15,675/95

x = 165
