    Question Sort /Sort out

    Hello,

    'What happened with the booking problem...are you all (sorted /sorted out)?'

    Which one shall I use and what's the difference between 'sorted' and 'sorted out'

    Many thanks

    Re: Sort /Sort out

    "Sorted" means put in some type of order.

    "Sorted out" is an idiomatic phrase that means "resolved" (a solution to the problem has been found).

    Re: Sort /Sort out

    In BrE 'sorted' is used, but both are OK

    'That's sorted', 'Are you sorted?'
