Any Mathematicians out there??!!!..Please Help!!!!

Recommended Posts

Ok..so there's a reason why I hate Math....I suck!..lol Anyway, I'm trying to book a hall for my BFF's Bridal Shower. I hate to have to limit her to a total of 25 people. But I don't think I could afford anymore. I did the math but I think I did it wrong. I'm the worst at this someone please help me. I would love to do 40 people but I think that would be too much. Hmmmmm.....Again, someone please help me figure this out.




The Restaurant states on it's website the following along with the menu,



Banquet Luch Package


Served from 11 am to 3 pm


Package Includes
Home made bread, unlimited soft drinks, coffee and tea.

$23.75 Per Person
Please add 7% tax and 20% gratuity



For 25 people....???

For 35 People..???

Ok, working in the restaurant business from time to time may have helped me with this :o)  You have to multiply the tax and gratuity seperately because you cannot tax gratuity and you can't get gratuity from tax (if that makes ANY sense!?!)  Hope this helps!?  These are the numbers I came up with:


25 people -- $593.75 + 41.56 (tax) + 118.75 (gratuity) = $754.06


35 people -- 831.25 + 58.19 (tax) + 166.25 (gratuity) = $1055.69


I think it is AMAZING of you to host something like this and I think she will appreciate and understand whatever you can do!

I am not the best at math either but the total for 40 people is looking to be around $1200.


Do you have to do it at a hall?  My bridesmaids are throwing mine at one of their houses and I know it will be much cheaper than that. 


I have also thrown two bridal showers, both in my parents backyard and they turned out great plus it was more intimate.


Just a thought...  :)

I definitely agree!  The idea of someones house or even a church hall would save you a bundle, and you could use all of the saved money on a nice cake and great food/desserts of your own choice!?

Well yes i hate that we have to book a hall. Unfortunetly, all bridesmaids including myself have small tiny places. so it looks like this has to be the way to go. But thank you guys so much!!! really.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
