Living on your own: Sanjay is looking for one-bedroom apartment on rent. At Neelgiri appartments, rent for the first two months is 20% off. The one bedroom rate at Neelgiri is Rs 6,000 per month. At Savana appartments, the first month is 50% off. The one bedroom rate at Savana appartments is Rs 7000 per month. Which apartment will be cheaper for the first two months? By how much?

Given, one bedroom rate at Neelgiri = 6000 per month

Also, 20% off for first two months

We need to calculate the cheaper apartment

Now, we know x% of n =

20% of rent =

= 1200

Rent for first two months = 2× (6000 – 1200)

= 2 × 4800

= 9600 Rs.

Rent for first two months at Neelgiri apartments = Rs. 9600

At Savana apartments, 50%off for first month

And rent for bedroom = 7000 per month

50% off rent =

= Rs.3500

Rent for first month = Rs.7000-Rs.3500

= Rs. 3500

But, we need rent for two months for comparing

Rent for two months in savanna apartment = 3500 + 7000

= Rs.10500

Now, comparing two apartments rent, we get

= Rs.10500- Rs.9600

= Rs. 900

Hence, Neelgiri apartment will be cheaper by Rs.900
