Calculate a Tip in Seconds Worksheet
About This Worksheet:
I so wish I would have adapted this simplistic concept for calculating tips at restaurants. Some times when I'm in a hurry and don't have a second to spare, I just give 20%. That's great if the service is at that level, but many times it wasn't; I would have saved tons of dough. Tell your kids that kids that you are going to teach them a way to save hundreds of dollars. While on the subject; you might want to start a new word problem: If teacher A over pays 10 tips a year by 5% (over a period of 20 years); how much could she have saved, by doing this little trick?
How Long?: 8 - 12 minutes
Standards Met: Practical Math
