00:00:01.440 --> 00:00:08.330
The total cost of a meal in a restaurant is 41 dollars 87 cents, including tax.
00:00:09.110 --> 00:00:14.900
If Charlotte left eight dollars for a tip, estimate the percentage of her tip.
00:00:16.240 --> 00:00:21.990
We were told in the question that the total bill was 41 dollars and 87 cents.
00:00:22.970 --> 00:00:26.240
The tip that Charlotte left was equal to eight dollars.
00:00:27.320 --> 00:00:36.270
This means that the percentage tip is eight out of or divided by 41.87 multiplied by 100.
00:00:37.220 --> 00:00:42.820
We’re multiplying by 100 as the word percent means out of 100.
00:00:43.980 --> 00:00:51.770
Typing this into the calculator gives us 19.106759 and so on.
00:00:53.020 --> 00:00:55.510
We were asked to estimate the percentage.
00:00:55.820 --> 00:01:01.090
Therefore, it is sensible to round this answer to the nearest whole number or integer.
00:01:02.490 --> 00:01:06.880
The deciding number is the one immediately after the decimal point.
00:01:07.370 --> 00:01:10.510
As this is less than five, we will round down.
00:01:11.680 --> 00:01:19.860
19.106759 rounded to the nearest whole number is equal to 19 percent.
00:01:20.970 --> 00:01:26.560
We can therefore say that the percentage that Charlotte tipped is 19 percent.
