If the total bill at a restaurant, including a 15% tip, is $65.32, what is the meanl alone?

I just need help setting up the equation. I know it should be in the format of 100*_____=15*_______ but I feel like I am missing 2 parts of the equation.

Can someone please help???

Thank you!

At the restaurant 15% of the meal's cost hasbeen added on as the tip. So if M is the cost of the meal then the cost of the tip is:

Mx15/100

hence the total cost of the meal, T, is

M+(Mx15/100)=T

I think you can work it from here.

What is a pictograph?


I assume that as this is under Maths you are after a maths related answer. Pictograph...
In graph theory, a pictograph is a graph that shows numerical information by using picture symbols or icons to represent data sets. The advantage of using a pictograph is that it is easy to interpret.
This is often seen in newspapers, say to compare the size of armies with different lengths of lines of soldiers.
A rather misleading use is when a picture is scaled up in height and width to show an increase. To the eye this looks much larger as the eye is comparing the relative areas, not the heights.
The term is also used for drawings by early man.
