    My four friends and I are going to a concert and we're dividing the cost up so I'm paying for most of the tickets. Can I say:

    I'll pay for half of the costs and you three can divide the remaining costs among yourselves/the three of you.


    Is there a more natural way of saying this?

    Your sentence is fine. 'Divide the other half among yourselves' is better.
