The rent for one month is $1150

Work Step by Step

(Let x equal the amount of rent for one month. Multiply x times 2 since 2 months are being paid for. Add 500 because they also gave the landlord 500 dollars. Set the equation to 2800 since we're told that's the total.) $2x+500=2800$ (Subtract 500 from each side) $2x=2300$ (Divide each side by 2) $x=1150$
