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 \$60.00 in tips. The waitress takes \$45.00, and the hostess takes \$15.00. If they continue to earn money at this rate, how much will the waitress receive if they earn \$256.00 at the end of their next shift?

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

The ratio for Waitress:hostess is 45:15, which is equal to 3:1. For \$256 the ratio would be \$192:\$64. The waitress receives \$192 and the hostess receives \$64.
