This application is okay. There are a couple limitations though that are not specified.
1. The tip amounts are: 0%, 10%, 15%, 20% and are fixed (no custom percentage is possible)
2. The calculator is a little confusing. It takes the total amount after tip, divides by the number of people, rounds DOWN to the nearest dollar and this is what it suggests to pay. Then it multiplies the "suggested payment amount" by the number of people then recalculates what the tip will be if everyone pays the suggested amount and then displays this at the top of the program.
So if you want to tip 15% on bill that's $69.50. The total is 69.50 + 15% = $79.92. Each person is supposed to pay: 79.79/10 = 7.99 but the application will round down to 7.00 and the server will get paid 7*10 = $70.00 which is essentially a tip of $0.50. This seems to me to be a strange algorithm.
