Enter the total rent ($), the combined square footage of all rooms (ft^2), and the square footage of the room that rent is to be calculated for (ft^2) into the calculator to determine the Room Rent. 

Room Rent Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Room Rent. 

RR = TR / CSQF * RSQF

  • Where RR is the Room Rent ($)
  • TR is the total rent ($) 
  • CSQF is the combined square footage of all rooms (ft^2) 
  • RSQF is the square footage of room that the rent is to be calculated for (ft^2) 

How to Calculate Room Rent?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Room Rent.

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the total rent ($). In this example, the total rent ($) is given as 5000 .
  2. Next, determine the combined square footage of all rooms (ft^2). For this problem, the combined square footage of all rooms (ft^2) is given as  1000 .
  3. Next, determine the square footage of the room that rent is to be calculated for (ft^2). In this case, the square footage of the room that rent is to be calculated for (ft^2) is found to be 300.
  4. Finally, calculate the Room Rent using the formula above: 

RR = TR / CSQF * RSQF

Inserting the values from above yields: 

RR = 5000 / 1000 * 300 = 1500 ($)


Example Problem #2

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total rent ($) = 6000

combined square footage of all rooms (ft^2) = 1500

square footage of the room that rent is to be calculated for (ft^2) = 500

Entering these values and solving gives:

RR = 6000 / 1500 * 500 = 2000 ($)
