Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well it says 18% goes off after tax is added. So we add 6% tax first which makes the cost 147.34. Then we remove the 18% , which reduces it to 120.82. Ask others to verify tho.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0depends on whether they added gratuity after 6% tax so total bill is 139(1.06)(1.18)=170.11 rounded.
