Jen and Heather went to lunch. When the bill came, Jen discovered she had only $8. Luckily, Heather had enough money to pay the other part, 3/5, of the bill.
How much did Heather pay?
How much was the total bill?

(2/5)x = 8
x = 8 / (2/5)
x = (8/1) * (5/2)
x = 40/2
x = 20
The total bill is $20.
20  8 = ?
