Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Before we actually do calculations, let's see what we need to do. We have a $10 bill (no tax & no tip) We need to add 7.5% tax and 15% tip. We need to find 7.5% of $10 (the tax) and we need to find 15% of $10 (the tip) and then we add $10, the tax and the tip.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Great. So far, you already found that the the tax is $0.75, and you added the tax, so the meal + tax is $10.75 Now we need to find the tip. The tip is 15% of $10. You can do this 2 ways. 1. Just find 15% of $10 15% of 10 = 15/100 * 10 = 2. Notice that 15% is exactly 2 times the 7.5% tax, so the tip is twice the tax. 2 * 0.75 = Both ways will give the same amount.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The tip ends up being $1.50 $10.75 + $1.50 = $12.25, not $12.36
