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?

Answer :

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
