Question from julie:

my property is 60'x66'
rent is $700 a month
how much per inch per month does this equal
how much per foot per month does this equal

Hi Julie,

I am a little confused by your question. I am going to assume you mean per square inch and per square foot.

Your property is 60 ft by 66 ft so the area is 60 times 66 = 3960 square feet. Since your rent is $700 per month that's

700/3960 = 0.1868 dollars per square foot per month.

There are 12 inches in a foot and hence 12 ties 12 = 144 square inches in a square foot so to find how much you pay per square foot per month divide 0.1868 by 144.
