    The expenditure will be divided "in" or "among" both of us"?

    I am going on a trip with my friend. We decide that the expenditure will be divided among both of us. So can I say "The expenditure will be divided "in" or "among" both of us"?

    Could you please check my sentences?

    If you put "among or between" (without the quotation marks) in the Custom Search box, you will find plenty of previous threads about it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "The expenditure will be divided "in" or "among" both of us" is this a correct sentence?

    Did you even read teechar's corrections in post #2? Read the part in bold starting "to split". That is the correct way of saying it.
