Tongue in Sendai

Spiky, Curly and Smiley ordered a set meal of gyutan (beef tongue) each.

Sendai is famous for its gyutan.

Each set meal cost ¥1680, including taxes. Is a ¥5000 bill enough to pay for their meal?

Groceries in Bandar Seri Begawan

This bottle holds 875 ml of body wash. It cost $6.40. 

A smaller bottle of 450ml cost $4.30. In Brunei there is no taxes. Also one can use Singapore currency here. 

What's the original volume of the $6.40 bottle given that 20% of it is free?

Without the free 20% is the bigger bottle still better value for money than the smaller bottle?
