James, Karen, and Lou are hiking. Lou forgot to bring any water. James brought $2$ gallons of water and Karen brought $1\frac34$ gallons of water. The three of them agree to divide all the water equally among them. Lou gives $\$2\$ for the water he receives, which James and Karen agree to divide fairly between the two of them. How much money should James receive?

James brough 2 gallons, and Karen brought 1 3/4 gallons.

2: 1 3/4 = 2 : 7/4 = 8:7

So James should receive 8/15*2 = 1.07.

I double-checked the work on paper- it wasn't correct.
