How the Tip or Gratuity Calculator work?
Tip calculator works by taking the inputs bill amount, tip percentage and number of people to split the tip and the bill. Tip value will be identified by calculating the tip's percentage of the bill amount. Then depending on the number of people, it will be split between them.
For example, if Bill amount is 200$, tip percentage is 15%, number of people is 2 then
Tip = 200*(15/100)=30$ Total : 200+30 = 230$ Tip per person = 30/2 = 15 Total per person = 230/2 = 115
In this way the tip will be calculated and bill will be split between any number of people fastly and easily by using Tip Calculator
