When writing in a tip on a receipt at a restaurant and adding it to the total amount for the meal, what happens if you get your math wrong and there is a discrepancy between the tip and the total? Which amount do they take as the tip?

Example: the total comes to $24.90. On the tip line you write $6.10, but on the revised total line you write $30 (indicating a tip of $5.10). Is it standard for them to take the $6.10 or the $5.10?
