1)Tim Worker expects Social Security benefits of \$937 per month. His wife, Mary, is eligible for a wife's benefit of 50 percent of Tim's benefit. How much will Mary receive?

50%  of  937  =  .50 * 937  = \$468.50

2) The Brown family's dinner bill was 75.89 and they left 10.00 as a tip. What percent was the tip?

Assuming that 75.89 was the total bill.....the percent of the tip is given  by :

10.00 / 75.89  ≈ 13.2 %

As for the third question....I don't know.....!!!

Although I am not a financial expert, I believe that I have somehow heard about such advice before, so I would say that #3 is true.
