• HSC is the total cost of house sitting ($) • D is the number of days of house sitting needed To calculate house sitting rate, divide the total cost of the house sitting by the number of days. How to Calculate House Sitting Rate? The following example problems outline how to calculate House Sitting Rate. Example Problem #1: 1. First, determine the total cost of house sitting ($).
• The total cost of house sitting ($) is given as: 5,000. 2. Next, determine the number of days of house sitting needed. • The number of days of house sitting needed is provided as: 10. 3. Finally, calculate the House Sitting Rate using the equation above: HSR = HSC / #D The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed. HSR = 5,000 / 10 = 500.00 ($/day)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total cost of house sitting (\$) = 600

number of days of house sitting needed = 5
