Step-by-step guide on how to calculate the percentage increase in rent. The formula is applicable to any situation where you have an initial value and a final value.

## Rent Percentage Increase Formula

Percentage Increase = (New Rent – Old Rent) / Old Rent x 100

## Steps to Calculate Rent Increase Percentage

### 1. Determine Old Rent

First, find out the old rent amount. This is the rent you were previously paying before any increase.

### 2. Find New Rent Amount

Next, determine the new rent amount. This is the rent you will be paying after the increase has been applied.

### 3. Calculate the Difference

Subtract the old rent from the new rent amount. This will give you the difference between the two rent prices.

### 4. Divide the Difference by old Rent

Divide the difference you found in Step 3 by the old rent amount. This will give you the fraction of the increase.

### 5. Convert Fraction to Percentage

Multiply the fraction obtained in Step 4 by 100 to convert it to a percentage. This will give you the percentage increase in rent.
