Accepted Solution

A:

53(1 + x)

the 53 is the cost of the meal without the tax

the x is gonna be the percentage of the tip u want to leave...in decimal form

so lets say u are going to leave a 5% tip.....5% = 0.05

ur equation would be 53(1 + 0.05) = 53(1.05) = 55.65...cost of meal and tip

the 53 is the cost of the meal without the tax

the x is gonna be the percentage of the tip u want to leave...in decimal form

so lets say u are going to leave a 5% tip.....5% = 0.05

ur equation would be 53(1 + 0.05) = 53(1.05) = 55.65...cost of meal and tip
