The owner of a bistro called First Crush in Potsdam, NY was interested in studying the tipping patterns of his customers. He collected restaurant bills over a two week period that he believes provide a good sample of his customers. The data recorded from 157 bills include the amount of the bill, size of the tip, percentage tip, number of customers in the group, whether or not a credit card was used, day of the week, and a coded identity of the server.


Thanks to Tom DeRosa for providing the tipping data.
