# A Group of Employees Bought a Get-Well Gift

## Calculating Employee Contribution for Get-Well Gift

A group of employees decided to buy a get-well gift for a co-worker, costing $16.06 in total. With 22 employees in the group, the question arises: how much does each employee need to contribute to cover the cost of the gift?

**A. $0.75**

**B. $1.33**

**C. $0.73**

**D. $1.37**

Well, the gift costs $16.06, and there are 22 workers in the group. To find out how much each employee needs to contribute, divide the total cost by the number of employees. We can eliminate options B and D because they are over a dollar and there are more people than dollars to cover. Therefore, the calculation would be $16.06 divided by 22, which equals $0.73. Thus, the correct answer is **C. $0.73**.

A group of employees bought a get-well gift for a co-worker. The gift cost $16.06. If there are 22 employees in the group, how much does each employee need to contribute?

Well, the gift costs 16.06 and there are 22 workers so divide the price by the number of people. We can rule out B and D because they are over a dollar and there are more people than dollars. 16.06/22 is 0.73 so the answer is C.
