Roger and five neighborhood friends were buying a trampoline that costs four hundred and fifty-six dollars and twenty-four cents. If the cost is divided equally among them, how much will each person pay?

Well, let’s think about this: we’ve got Roger and five neighbourhood friends, so there’re six people in total sharing the cost. And the question says that each of them is going to be paying the same amount, so they’re sharing the cost equally. And the total cost of the trampoline is four hundred and fifty-six dollars and twenty-four cents, so we’re dividing that four hundred and fifty-six dollars twenty-four cents between six people. The calculation then is four hundred and fifty-six point two four divided by six.
