**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at 4:59pmYour 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.
