  • Where RPP is the Rent Split ($) (per person)
  • TR is the total rent ($) 
  • #P is the total number of roommates 

How to Calculate Rent Split?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Rent Split.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total rent ($). In this example, the total rent ($) is given as 1500.
  2. Next, determine the total number of roommates. For this problem, the total number of roommates is given as 3.
  3. Finally, calculate the Rent Split using the equation above: 

RPP = TR / #P

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

RPP = 1500 / 3 = 500 ($)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total rent ($) = 3000

total number of roommates = 4

Entering these values and solving gives:

RPP = 3000 / 4 = 750 ($)
