## How to Calculate a Tip Without a Calculator

If you're presented with a bill in a restaurant but don't have your mobile phone or a calculator to hand, there's a quick and easy way to calculate the tip:

First, remove all the pennies from the total bill. So, for example, if the charge is \$42.65, round it down to \$42.60.

Next, you need to calculate 10 percent of this amount. This is easy. Simply move the decimal point to the left by one place. As such, 10 percent of \$42.60 is \$4.26. To make life easier, depending on how generous you're feeling, you can then round this figure up or down, to \$4.20 or \$4.30 respectively.

From there, you can easily calculate both 20 percent and 15 percent of the bill.

To determine 20 percent, simply double the 10 percent: \$4.30 × 2 = \$8.60 or \$4.20 × 2 =\$8.40.

To determine 15 percent, find the 10 percent, round it up or down, and then halve the figure and add it back to the 10 percent. So, for example:

Ten percent of \$42.60 is \$4.26 rounded to \$4.20. Half of \$4.20 (i.e., 5 percent) is \$2.10. As such, 15 percent of \$42.60 is roughly \$4.20 + \$2.10 = \$6.30.
