Computers are incredible at doing calculations. Now that we have declared variables, let’s use them with arithmetic operators to calculate things!

Emojicode supports arithmetic operators for:

`➕`

: addition`➖`

: subtraction`✖️`

: multiplication`➗`

: division`🚮`

: modulo (divides and gives the remainder)

For example:

4 ➕ 2 ➡️ score1 💭 scores1 is 6 4 ➖ 2 ➡️ score2 💭 scores2 is 2 4 ✖️ 2 ➡️ score3 💭 scores3 is 8 4 ➗ 2 ➡️ score4 💭 scores4 is 2 4 🚮 2 ➡️ score5 💭 scores5 is 0

Here, we are doing some arithmetic operations and storing the results in five different constants.

### Instructions

**1.**

In the code editor, we have already declared and initialized a variable called `amount`

.

Declare a new variable named `tip`

and give it the value of `amount`

multiplied by `0.2`

.

**Note:** There are quite a few variations of x’s in the emoji picker. Make sure to use `✖️`

.

**2.**

Use string interpolation to print a message that says:

The tip is $[tip]

Where `[tip]`

is the value of the `tip`

constant.
