Examples of taxes

Katherine bought groceries at the store and her total amount was $105. But when she got to the register she ended up paying 6% more than the original amount. To find how much she paid, you have to multiply 105 x 6% which equals to $6.30 then you have to add that to $105 which equals to $111.30

Examples of tips

Martha went to Bob Evans for her birthday. Her total cost on her bill was $25. She decided to tip her waiter by 15% because of the great service. To find her tip you have to multiply 25 x .15 =$3.75 now to find the overall cost you have to add that to $25 which equals to $28.75
