## 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 you can calculate the tip. Here's how:

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% of this amount. This is easy. Simply move the decimal point to the left by one place. As such, 10% 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.

For there, you can easily calculate both 20% and 15% of the bill.

To determine 20%, simply double the 10%; i.e., \$4.30 × 2 = \$8.60 or \$4.20 × 2 =\$8.40.

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

10% of \$42.60 is \$4.26 rounded to \$4.20. Half of \$4.20 (i.e., 5%) is \$2.10. As such, 15% of \$42.60 is roughly \$4.20 + \$2.10 = \$6.30.
