Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes that was the third part. I says, What is his rate of income to the nearest tenth of a percent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3The investment is $70,000. The net income (rent less expenses) is $200 a month, or $2400 a year. So the percentage would be\[\frac{2400}{70000}\approx 3.4~percent\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Although, I'm not certain that is exactly the way your teacher or the author of the text would figure it.
