Aspen,
1. A 2. C 3. B 4. B is what I got are they correct? if not what are the correct answers?

consumer math 
Ms. Sue,
Your first three are correct. I disagree with # 4. Of course it depends upon how much tip you leave, but the standard tip is 15% to 20% of the food and drink bill.
Hint: I mentally take 10% of the bill and then double it. I leave 20% or a little less for a tip.
