A group of four friends went out for dinner. Their subtotal for their meal came out to \$156. While waiting for the bill to come they tried to figure out how much the tax would be if they know the local tax is 8%. They also know they want to leave a 15% tip for the waiter. What is the final bill, including tax and tip? How much will each friend pay?

i got 191.85

156 * 1.08 = 168.48

168.48 * 0.15 = 25.27

168.48 + 25.27 = 193.78

193.78/4 = 48.45

but how did you get the 4
