To calculate rent based on sales:

1. | Calculate the minimum rent |

2. | Calculate the overage rent |

3. | Add the two together |

Example:

Rent is $3,000 per month plus 10% of monthly sales over $50,000. What is the rent if sales are $65,000?

Solution:

$65,000 - $50,000 = $15,000 - amount on which overage rent applies

$15,000 x 10% = $1,500 - percentage rent

$3,000 (minimum rent) + $1,500 (overage rent) = $4,500 (total rent)
