The English translation is odd. It should be either "You should leave the tip..." or "Leave the tip...".

A mon niveau actuel, je pencherais pour le conseil ou pour l'impératif aussi.

Put the tip on the table was NOT accepted, but seems less stilted than the preferred answer.

Dang, I typed "a" instead on "the" before the word "tip".
