Simple example of bills splitting
This example is simple as there is only one person to repay.Suppose a group of 4 friends (including 1 couple) who spent a weekend in the countryside.
Robert paid 200 for accommodation.
He is single, so there is one part.
Thomas, Maria paid 100 for meals.
They are a couple, so there are two parts.
Jennifer did not spend money.
She is single, so there is one part.
Results of group expenses splitting :
The total expense is 300.
There are a total of 4 parts.
The amount of a part is 75 (300/4).
The couple Thomas and Maria must repay 50 to Robert.
Jennifer must repay 75 to Robert.
