Hi AVic
If you only have a quarters trend then you would probably want the trend in weeks. The simplest way to view this trend would be to plot it on a graph.
However, if you mean to you 4 quarters sales figures (ie only four seperate numbers), I doubt you would be able to see much of a trend until you could get the figures for the last two or three years. Then you would be a able to see a seasonal trend at least.
I am not really sure if this helps. There are all sorts of other things involved when you want to extrapolate a trend but as I do not use this in my work, as soon as I finished my unit 15 I promptly forgot how to do it. :huh:

Nope doesnt help but ty0 
A = T + S
You need at least two of the numbers to be able to work out the missing number.eg. (A) actual sales and/or Trend (T) and/or (S) Seasonal, there are other factors such as Random but unit 15 only expects you to deal with A T and S.
What information have you been give other than just the sales which are probably the actual sales (A)?0
