""I would have thought that using percentages to calculate tips would ensure increases with the cost of living."
What does ensure mean in this sentence? I would say tips would increase...Would it be different?
Can you write the entire sentence you're suggesting? I'm not sure how you're trying to word the alternative.
I've just spotted that this is a duplicate thread and you already have three or four responses. Please don't post the same question twice.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
