How much did each pay?

John, Paul, Mike and Bill bought a Nintendo game together. The game costs $48. John contributed 1/4, Paul contributed 1/8, Mike gave twice as much as John, and Bill gave the rest. How much did each pay?

    -John gave 1/4 which comes out to be $12 (because 48 divided by 4 is 12)

    -Paul gave 1/8 which comes out to be $6 (because 48 divided by 8 is 6)

    -Mike gave twice as much as John which comes out to be $24 (because 12 times 2 is 24)

    -Bill end up paying the rest which is %6 (because after you add up all that John, Paul, and Mike pay 6 dollars are left)
