A meal at a restaurant costs $10.00 and the tax, yet to be added is 7.5%, plus you wish to leave a tip of 15% of the untaxed bill. The total amount that you would pay (tax and tip included), is $12.36.

well 7.5% of $10 is 0.75 and then you have 10.75
Before 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.
Great. 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.
The tip ends up being $1.50
$10.75 + $1.50 = $12.25, not $12.36
Now you add $10.75 + $1.5
What do you get?
