You can do this in steps.

#### Explanation:

In all they have $4.44 i.e. $4, 4 dimes and 4 cents

You first give everone a $1 i.e. $3

You then have $1.44 left, i.e. 14 dimes and 4 cents

You then give them 4 dimes each (= 12 dimes)

You then have left 2 dimes and 4 cents = 24 cents.

You can evenly divide by giving everyone 8 cents (=24 cents)

Now everybody has $1 + 4 dimes + 8 cents, or $1.48

Of course you could have done a long division, or even use your calculator.
