A vacation lodge was rented for 10 days at a daily rate of $R. So, TOTAL rent = (10)($R) = 10R dollars

From the total rent paid, the travel agency and the resident manager each were paid 10% and the cleaning service was paid $100 Amount the travel agency receives = 10% of 10R dollars = R dollars Amount the resident manager receives = 10% of 10R dollars = R dollars Amount of the cleaning service receives = 100 dollars After these 3 payments were made,$2,000 remained of the total rent paid
We can write: 10R - R - R - 100 = 2000
Simplify: 8R - 100 = 2000
Add 100 to both sides: 8R = 2100
Divide both sides by 8 to get: R = 2100/8 = 262.5
