Find the percent, round if nessacary:
1) 3 dollar tip for a 18.70 Taxi Fare.
So 3 x 18
Correct?
Or how would I even solve this problem?
Thanks for helping

You need to divide, not multiply.
Think about it, a $3 tip is 1/6 of 18. That's about 17%
3/18.7 = ?

.1604

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