    Good morning,

    In order to to solve the sales revenue, you must remember that it will be current year price index / (divide by) base index. In this question the base index is the first year price index of 110. In the exam it may say the base index is 201 (example). So to work out for Year 3 sales revenue, it will be 120 / 110 x (multiply) 12,400 = £13,527.27 (but do bare in mind they have rounded down as its less than .50 so it would be £13,527

    Hope this helps you out and good luck

    Kind regards

    Shamil Karia
