Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i will try my best, but you will also try to understand as well :) when we give a tip, we always have to add (+) it with the total price. remember that this is being divided to 7 people EQUALLY. thus, what operation can we use to figure out how much they will pay equally?
