How To: Master the Art of Split Calculations

Picture this: you and your friends are out for dinner, and when the bill arrives, the dread of splitting it evenly begins. Follow these steps to become a split calculation pro:

1. Plan Ahead

Before you even sit down at the restaurant, discuss with your friends how you want to split the bill. Will you split it evenly, or do you prefer to pay for what you individually ordered? Having this conversation beforehand will save you a lot of time and confusion later.

2. Use a Split Calculator

Instead of wasting time manually calculating everyone's share, leverage a split calculator like Switch. With just a few clicks, you can enter the total bill amount, the number of people, and any additional expenses (such as tip or tax) to get the exact amount each person owes.

3. Consider Individual Preferences

Take into account any special requests or dietary restrictions when splitting the bill. If someone only had a salad while others ordered expensive dishes, adjust their share accordingly to ensure fairness.

4. Use Switch's Chat Functionality

Communicate with your group members using Switch's chat feature to clarify any doubts or resolve discrepancies. It's easier to have open conversations about expenses when everyone is on the same page.
