**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, January 5, 2010 at 5:55pmSince 2/5 = 0.4 . . .

Let x = total bill.

0.4x = 8

x = 8/0.4

x = 20

**Shanta**, Tuesday, January 5, 2010 at 5:58pmI 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.
