Family 1 and Family 2 go on holiday together, sharing accommodation. Prior to the holiday the family split the cost of the accommodation equally - Total cost = £1500, each family pay £750. However, Family 2 have an additional bedroom so reimburse Family 1 with £50. Does this mean Family 2 have paid £50 or £100 for the room? Many thanks in advance!
