The dinner costed $48 in total. Step-by-step explanation: The amount of bill paid by Will = 1/4 of bill Amount of bill paid by Micah and Sue 1: 3 Let us assume the common factor in the ratio = m So, the amount paid by Micah = 1 x (m) = m The amount paid by Sue = 3 x (m) = 3 m Also, amount paid by Sue =$15 + Amount paid by Will

So, the amount paid by Will =  amount paid by Sue – $15 = 3 m –$15

Total Bill  = Bill amount paid by ( Will + Micah + Sue)

=   m + 3 m + 3 m – 15  = 7 m – 15

Now, As will paid 1/4 of total bill.

or,  m = 9

Now, the total bill = 7 m – 15  = 7(9) – 15  =  $48 Hence, the dinner costed$48 in total.
