The Rodriguez family dined at a restaurant. Their bill came to $119 plus 9% sales tax. They also plan to leave a 22% tip on the price of the meal before tax. Which is a reasonable estimate of the total amount they will pay? (A.)$121 (B.)$132 (C.)$144 (D.)$156

dude:

Okay, we can start by calculating tip as they want to give tip before any taxes You should convert the percent (22%) to a decimal, do you know how to do that?

wardchl000:

Yes

dude:

Okay Multiply the bill cost ($119) by the percent (22%)

wardchl000:

ok thx

dude:

Hmm That's not it.. Once you have that, you'll have to find the total after tax To do the same as previous but with the different percentage (9%) Once you find that, add that to the original, then add the tip amount
