    was the eight dollars 1/5 of the bill? Seems like you are missing info.

    no shanta this is how it is written

    Since 2/5 = 0.4 . . .

    Let x = total bill.

    0.4x = 8
    x = 8/0.4
    x = 20

    I would say 20 dollars. Because if Jen had 8 dollars that must have been 2/5 of the bill which would make 1/5 4 dollars and 4 x 5 = 20.
