Calculating With Percent

Say What?

We are studying calculating percentage. Some special types of percents we study are taxes, tips, discounts, mark ups, and commission.

Taxes and Tips... A closer look.

My day at Chipotle.

At Chipotle I bought a burrito wrap and it cost $6.54. The sale taxes is 6.75%. So you do $6.54 x 6.75% and that equals 0.44. So you add $6.54 + 0.44 and you get $6.98. And then I left a $4.00 tip and then my total came to $10.98.
