The time from beginning of March to the end of September is 7 months.
If x is the average monthly tip for all months other than August then his August month tip will be 3*x
His total tip for the 7 months = 6*(average tip for the months other than August) + 3x
=9x

August tips as a fraction of total tips = 3x/9x =1/3. So A
