Amid's bill at a restaurant was $39.24. He plans to leave a 15% tip for the waiter. Explain how Amid can ESTIMATE the amount for the tip.
omg i hate these percent things srry im in 5th grade cany help <3 :(
i love these! this is what i do all the time in my head.!!
okay, pretend her bill is 40.00. then a trick for % is that 10% is just the amount when you move the decimal over one space. so in this case 10% would be 4$. now we need to calculate 15%!!! so we already hav 10% now to get another 5%, well thats half of the amount of 10%. since 10% gives us 4$ 5% will give us 2$. so we add those up(4$+$2=6) and we have a total tip of 15% of 6 dollars.
haha thanks that was my friend who wrote that i love these too!
