Answer:

A #15%# tip would be about #$15#, or #$15.12# to be exact.

Explanation:

To find tips, multiply the value by the percent. Don't know how to find the numeric value of a percent? It is the #%# you are given over #100#.

For this example, it is #15/100#, which is #0.15# in the decimal form. Next, multiply.

#100.82 xx 0.15 = 15.123#

If you are told to round to the nearest cent, it would be #$15.12#. To the nearest #10# cents, #$15.10#. To the nearest dollar, #$15#.

To find the value of the whole thing, simply add the tip to the bill. For this example, it would end up being #$115.94#.
