# Calculation of percentage

### Daniel brown

## Taxes,tips,and mark ups Taxes are a certain amount of the total added to the total. Tips are a certain percent of the amount you pay for good service. A mark up is when the price is multiplied by a percent of a number an then added to that number. | ## Discounts galore A discount is a certain percent off the store price Ex. A store is selling a jacket for $32.75. You have a discount card for 40 percent off the jacket so .4 times $32.75=$13.10 | ## Commission is weird Commissions are an amount of money you get off a sale EX. a girl has a lemonade stand she sells lemonade for every cup of lemonade she sells she gets 10% for each sale she makes lemonade costs 1.00 so 1.00*.1=10cents |

card for 40 percent off the jacket so .4 times $32.75=$13.10

## All examples Ex tax is 2.1% and a sandwich costs $1.99 and 1.99 *2.1=$4.18 +1.99=$6.17 | ## Mark up ex. Theirs a carpet that costs $32.56there was a 10% mark up so (32.56*.1)+32.56=$35.82 | ## Tip ex The food at Denny's costed $24.99 and the waitress did a good job so you leave a 30% tip so 24.99*.3 and your total is $32.49 |
