    $13.75 is 100% of the bill

    We want 5%

    5% out of 100%

    5/100 = 1/20

    To find 5%, we need to divide by 20

    $13.75 / 20 = $0.6875

    We can only have 2 decimal places with money, as 7 is above 5 we round 8 up to 9

    5% = $0.69

    To find the total, add the tax to the original cost

    $13.75 + $0.69 = $14.44
