Estimate a 15% tip on a taxi ride that cost 23.25.

  • math -

    What is your estimate?

  • math -

    15/23.25= x/100 then you cross multiply?

  • math -

    No. Besides, your instructions tell you to estimate.

    When I estimate I first figure 10%. Then I double the 10%, and tip some amount between.

    10% of 23 = 2.30
    2.30 * 2 = 4.60

    Estimate a number between 2.30 and 4.60
