Here was the question:

Did the salon get it right when it posted this sign? "Our customers have been asking us how much they should tip?"

15 (31%)
31 (64%)
2 (4%)

I agree with 64% of you. The sentence concerns a question but is not itself a question; therefore, a period, not a question mark, is needed at the end.
