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 = ?
