Three friends, Sarah, Mark, and Lisa, decided to have lunch at their favorite restaurant. They enjoyed spending time together, but this time, they wanted to pay for their meals separately. As they sat down at a cozy table, they noticed a friendly waiter named Tom. Sarah spoke up, "Tom, is it possible for us to get separate bills, please?" Tom smiled and nodded. "Of course! Just let me know when you're ready to order." The friends began ordering their favorite dishes. Sarah had a delicious salad, Mark chose a hearty sandwich, and Lisa ordered a big bowl of pasta. When they finished eating, they signaled Tom for the bill. He brought three separate checks, each with the right amount for their meals.
