A Condo is renting at \$1,100 per month. I have two options, if I sign up for 12 month, I get 1 month free offer. Or I can use the money from that 1 month and spread it throughout the 12 month. My question is, if I would to go ahead and use that free month (\$1100) and spread it to 12 month, what would my newly adjusted monthly rent be?

I am not sure which way is correct:

1. Do I use (1100 x 12) / 13 = 1015

2. Or (1100 x 12) - 1100 = 12100. Then 12100/12 = 1008

So which method is correct and which method is wrong. Please explain in (DETAIL).
