A and B agree to share the cost of an $18 pizza based on how much each would eat. B ate 3/2 of the pizza that A ate. How much should A and B each pay?

A = pizza eaten by A

3/2 A = pizza eaten by B

A + 3/2 A = 1 whole pizza

5/2 A = 1

A = 2/5 of the pizza so: 2/5 * $ 18 = $ 7.20 = A share and B pays the rest = $ 10.80
