Jun 11, 2017

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 $\frac{15}{100}$, which is $0.15$ in the decimal form. Next, multiply.

$100.82 \times 0.15 = 15.123$

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.
