**About Partial Rent Calculator (Formula)**

The **Partial Rent Calculator** is designed to help landlords and tenants calculate the rent due for a partial month. This is useful when a tenant moves in or out partway through the month, and the rent needs to be prorated based on the days the property was occupied. This tool ensures that both parties can calculate the fair amount of rent owed without confusion.

### Formula

The formula for calculating partial rent is:

**PR = (MR / DPM) * #D**

Where:

- PR = Partial Rent
- MR = Monthly Rent
- DPM = Days per Month
- #D = Number of days the tenant occupied the property

This formula divides the monthly rent by the number of days in the month and multiplies it by the number of days the tenant lived in the property.

### How to Use

**Determine the monthly rent (MR)**: Input the monthly rent amount for the property.**Count the number of days in the month (DPM)**: Identify how many days are in the current month (28, 30, or 31).**Calculate the days the tenant occupied the property (#D)**: Enter the number of days the tenant has lived in the property for that month.**Click Calculate**: The result will display the partial rent due based on the days of occupancy.

### Example

Let’s say the monthly rent (MR) is $1,500, and the tenant is moving in on the 10th of a 30-day month. The tenant will occupy the property for 21 days in the month. Using the formula:

**PR = (1,500 / 30) * 21 = 50 * 21 = 1,050**

The tenant will owe $1,050 for that partial month.
