Price to Income Ratio

Median Apartment Price per Square Meter to Buy Apartment R 10,133.82
Fmilial disposable income R 15,123.92

My formula works out 58.9064541

public double calculateMedianHousePriceOutsideOfCentre() {
return getBuyPricePerSquareMeterOutsideOfCentre() * 90;

public double calculateMedianHousePriceCityCentre() {
return getBuyPricePerSquareMeterCityCentre() * 90;

public double calculateMedianHousePrice() {
return (calculateMedianHousePriceCityCentre() + calculateMedianHousePriceOutsideOfCentre()) / 2;

public double calculateHousePriceToIncomeRatio() {
return calculateMedianHousePrice() / calculateMedianFamilyDisposableIncomeYearly();
