### HideShow timer Statistics

The price of lunch for 15 people was $207.00, including a 15 percent gratuity for service. What was the average price per person, EXCLUDING the gratuity? a.$11.73
b. $12.00 c.$13.80
d. $14.00 e.$15.87

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Wouldn't you multiply 207 by (1-.15) to calculate the cost of the meal (WITHOUT gratuity)? And then divide evenly by 15 people?

price of the meal per person including gratuity = 207/15

we know here the gratuity was 15%. lets say price of one meal = p

=>(115/100)p = 207/15

=> p = price of the meal without any gratuity = (207*100)/(15*115) = \$12
