First, convert the 18% to an actual number that can be used in a calculation. For percents,this is always done by simply dividing the percent (in this case 18%) by 100%.So, the conversational term "18%" becomes 18% / 100% = 0.18 in terms of a real mathematical number.Second, you need to find out what 18% of your $50 meal cost is.This is always done by multiplying 0.18 by $50.00, or0.18 x $50.00=$9.00.So, the amount of tip you are going to leave is $9.00.This makes the total cost of your meal (to write on your charge slip or other payment) $50.00 + $9.00 = $59.00.
