Solved Examples

Question 1:

What is the percentage change in the rent of the house if on the month of January it was Rs. 10,000 and in the month of March it is Rs. 15,000.?

Solution:

We can clearly see that there is an increase in the value of rent, so the percentage increase will be given as:

Percentage Increase = (Increased Value ⁄ Original Value) × 100

Here, Increased value = 15000 – 10000 = 5000

Original Value = 10000

5000 ⁄ 10000 = 33.33%

Hence, there is a 33.33% increase in the value of rent.
