a problem at workI need help figuring out a percentage increase. If, over 4 years the sales of all stores are listed below. The sales at store 1 are to the right. #2 20060207 18:53:27
Re: a problem at workI'm not sure if I am answering your question correctly because I don't understand what the companywide sales has to do with it...But based solely on your sales at Store 1: The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution.

Re: a problem at workAnd there are different ways people may interpret the phrase "percentage increase". Example: "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #4 20060208 08:22:31
Re: a problem at workineedhelp, I don't know who was doing the rounding for those colums up there. The store one column appears to represent that store's percentage of all of the stores sales. Last edited by irspow (20060208 08:25:06)
