Marlo pays \(\$750\) rent each month. Bea’s rent is \(12\% \)higher. What is the ratio of Marlo’s rent to Bea’s rent?

25:28

Explanation

First find Bea’s rent. \(12\% \text {of} \$750=(12/100) \times 750=\$90\). So Bea’s rent \(= \$750 + \$90 = \$840\). The ratio of Marlo’s rent to Bea’s rent is 750:840. Dividing by the common factor 30, 750:840 = 25:28.
