Amazingly, the couples order the same appetizers, main courses and desserts. In fact, the only difference in their bill is that Ken and Rebeccah, celebrating Rebeccah's big promotion at work ordered the $1000 bottle of champagne, while Marie and Ray ordered the cheapest bottle of wine - a $35 dollar bottle of Trefethen Chardonnay.
Here are their bills: Marie and Ray $100 food, $35 drink - a total of $135 dollars.
Ken and Rebecca: $100 food, $1000 drink - a total of $1100 dollars.
Both parties were pleased with Paul's service. They wish to tip him 20%. Assume that Ken and Rebecca make about the same amount of money as Marie and Ray, and there are no other unusual circumstances that would cause them to have any especially large amount of money to "throw around." Also, guests get the wine from the server and there is no sommelier.
How much should they each tip?
A) Marie and Ray tip $27 and Ken and Rebeccah tip $220 (both tip 20% of the total bill)
B) Marie and Ray tip $20 and Ken and Rebeccah tip $20 (both tip 20% of the FOOD portion of the bill)
C) Marie and Ray tip $27 and Ken and Rebeccah tip $20 plus another amount for the beverage service (indicate amount and why)
D) any other amount for either party
