Find the percent, round if nessacary:

1) 3 dollar tip for a 18.70 Taxi Fare.

So 3 x 18

You need to divide, not multiply.

Think about it, a $3 tip is 1/6 of 18. That's about 17%

3/18.7 = ?

Yes. Now move the decimal point two places to the right to get the percent. Round your answer to the nearest whole percent.
