Upon receiving the check for his family’s meal at his favorite seafood restaurant, Mr. Jackson wants to ensure that the waitress receives a 20% tip. If the meal costs $139.76, what is the dollar amount of the tip that the waitress will receive?
$13.98 $20.00 $39.76 $27.95
It is simple, just multiply 139.76 by .20
change 20% to a fraction (1/5) multiply it to total (1/5 times 139.76) thats your answer
And I would say it would probably be easier to just change it to a decimal (.20) instead of a fraction (1/5)
no, take 0.2 times 139.76
No, take a calculator and mutiply .20 by 139.76. you should get 27.952, and you round that to the nearest 2 decimal places since it is money, so it is 27.95
$27.95 should be the answer
