## Base Rent Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Base Rent.

Rbase = TR - POSR

- Where Rbase is the Base Rent ($)
- TR is the total rent ($)
- POSR is the percent of sales rent ($)

To calculate the base rent, subtract the percent of sales rent from the total rent.

## How to Calculate Base Rent?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Base Rent.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the total rent ($). In this example, the total rent ($) is given as 7000.
- Next, determine the percent of sales rent ($). For this problem, the percent of sales rent ($) is given as 5000.
- Finally, calculate the Base Rent using the equation above:

Rbase = TR – POSR

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

Rbase = 7000 – 5000 = 2000 ($)

**Example Problem #2: **

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total rent ($) = 8000

percent of sales rent ($) = 3000

Entering these values and solving gives:

Rbase = 8000 – 3000 = 5000 ($)
