You want to take your family out to dinner You must do so on a budget and must determine if you will have enough money. Please read through all of the directions below before beginning the task.
Use the internet (the restaurant does not have to be on island) or take out menus from local restaurants to determine what restaurant you want to visit as well as see prices on the menu. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GO OUT TO EAT. The restaurant that you choose must have drinks, pupus (appetizers), entrees and desserts. Note: the prices MUST include a decimal amount, such as $14.99. Follow the directions below. Use your estimation skills to best choose prices.
Budget: $200 for a family of four
1. Each family member is allowed one drink, one pupu (appetizer), and one entree. Choose one for each family member and total the price. You should have four totals. Note: if you are over budget, each family member may not get all three meal items.
2. Two family members would like to split a dessert and the other two would like to split a different dessert. Choose two desserts and total them. Note: if you are over budget, each pair of family members may not get a dessert.
3. Next, create a total for the drinks, pupus, entrees and desserts that wish to be ordered.
4. You need to add a tip. Multiply the total food amount by 0.15. Then add that amount to the original total.
For example, the total dinner price is $167.45. Multiplying the total by 0.15 which equals $25.12. Then add to $167.45. Final answer - $192.57
5. Now, it is time to see if you are under or over budget.
- If the dinner total is more than your budget, then you have spent too much money. You must change the food items chosen or eliminate certain choices for each member. Work through directions 1 - 4 again until you are under budget.
- If the dinner total is less than your budget, then subtract the dinner total from the budget and record the amount.
Turn in the following on loose leaf paper with the name of the restaurant. Show all work if necessary.
- Total of the drinks, pupus and entrees for each family member (four totals)
- Total of all desserts
- Complete food total (drink, pupu, entree, and dessert).
- Food total including tip.
- Difference of final total from the budget (it should be under budget).
- Final amount divided by each family member (total amount divided by four).
