Emily just started a job using her bicycle to pick up groceries and deliver them to people in her neighborhood. Once a grocery order is placed on DriveFoodAp, Emily will go pick up the groceries and then deliver them. She has to pay the DriveFoodAp 20%. If the delivery fee is $50, then Emily has to give the DriveFoodApp company 20% of that. She gets to keep the rest. Today, she had time to do 5 deliveries. The delivery fees were $15, $12, $20, $18, and $22."Don't forget sometimes people tip," adds Emily. "And I get to keep the entire tip."Oh, Sorry! She got tips of $2, $3, $5, $10, and $1.

How much money did Emily make on deliveries today?

Lemme have a go at this. 

20% of a number is 1/5 of the number

So we can do 1/5x50=10. So she has to pay $10 per delivery

   (Btw that was the example that the problem gave I think)

Now we can use that mothod for all the prices
RIght now we are looking for emilies profit.

15->12
12->9.60
20->16
18->14.40
22->17.60
(Sorry that I didnt add the dollar sign I thought it would be confusing)


Now lets add them up
We will get $69.60 excluding the tip
Now we add the tip to it.

The total tip is $21
Now we add $21+69.60
$90.60
