Gloria ordered = \$24
Friend ordered = \$22
Drinks = \$25
Discount on cheaper meal @50% = \$11

Total cost = 24+25+11 = \$60
Tax @10% = \$6
Tip @20% without discount = (24+22+25)*0.2 = 14.2

Total cost = 60+6+14.2 = 80.2

Ans. D

D \$80.20
E \$92.30

With the discount the cheaper meal costs 22 x 1/2 = \$11.

So, the total after discount is 24 + 11 + 25 = \$60 and the total before discount would be 24 + 22 + 25 = \$71.

Gloria also left a tip of 0.2 x 71 = \$14.20.

Tax was 0.1 x 60 = \$6.

So, the total cost was 60 + 14.20 + 6 = \$80.20.

Answer: D
