jen and heather went to lunch. when the bill came, jen discovered she had only$6. luckily, heather had enough money to pay the other part, or three fifths. how much did heather pay? how much was the bill?

heather paid $9 and the total bill was $15 because of you divide 6 by 2 (the 2 is from 2/5) then you get 3 which is 1/5. then you just multiply the 3 by 3 (the 3 is from 3/5) to get 9 which is how much heather paid. and then you just add 6 and 9 to get the total bill, $15.

$12

Heather paid ?12.00

Heather paid 12 and the total bill was 20
