Answer:Hello there! 🙂 The tip they would leave you would be of $23.23

Step-by-step explanation:The first step is to devide 116.17 by 100, which would equal 1.1617, which is obviously not your answer or a valid amount of money. But, you now take this 1.1617 by 20. Why? Becuase 20% is the same as 20 out of 100. Now you multiply 1.1617 × 20 and you will get $23.23.

Example on how to solve:

To figure out the tip, you need to find 20% of $52.60.

0.2×52.6=10.52

You should leave $10.52 for the waiter if you want to leave him exactly 20%.

To figure the tax, you need to find 8% of $52.60.

0.08×52.6=4.208

Next, add them up:

52.6+10.52+4.208=67.328

The total bill, including tax and tip, will be $67.33.
