You are ordering food for home delivery. The cost of your food is $26. You want to give the delivery person an 18% tip. What is the total cost with the tip?
How do you show your work and solve this problem up above?????

You try it. I'll be glad to check your answer.

26 * .18= $4.68

So far, so good. The tip is $4.68. The question, though, asks for the total cost with tip.
