  1. def main():
  2.     BillAmount = raw_input('Enter the bill amount: ')
  3.     TipAmount = CalcTip(check, total)
  5.     print 'The tip on $&.2f is $%.2f.' % (BillAmount, TipAmount)
  7. def CalcTip():
  8.     return 0
  10. #Call main
  11. main()
I just need it to print out the calculation for a 15% tip. This is all I have and I have no idea what else to do. Please Help. Thank You.

The tip is 15% times the bill amount. This is very simple code and so you should figure it out how to mulitply for yourself.
