### Solved Example

Question:

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 amount of rent.

Here, Increased value = 15000 – 10000 = 5000

Original Value = 10000

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

= (5000 ⁄ 10000) × 100

= 50%

Hence, there is a 50% increase in the amount of rent.
