Answers

Percent increase in rent is 12.5%

Step-by-step explanation:

Given:

In past the rent you paid $800 per month to rent your apartment.

i.e, Original rent paid = $ 800

You now pay $900 per month for your rent.

i.e New rent paid = $900

Increase in the rent is= New rent - Original rent= $900 -$800 =$100.

To find the percent increase in rent.

Percent increase is equal to Divide the increase by the original number and multiply the answer by 100.

i.e,

Percent Increase = \frac{Increase in rent}{Original rent } \times 100

then;

Percent Increase = \frac{\$ 100}{\$ 800} \times 100

Simplify:

Percent Increase = 12.5\%

therefore, the percent increase in your rent is 12.5%
