Jason ate lunch at Virginia’s Diner. If his meal cost him
$11.00, and he wants to leave Virginia a 15% tip, how
much money should Jason leave for the total bill?
A. $11.50
B. $12.00
C. $12.36
D. $12.50
E. $12.65 how do you do this?

E 12.65
15%/100=x/11
cross multiply to get 165=100x and divide both side by 100 to get x=1.65
that is the tip add the tip to his total off 11 dollars; 11+1.65 to get 12.65
