    c) The long way.... £472,298 x 5% = £23,614.90 therefore month 7 will be £472,298 + £23,614.90 = £495,912.90
    or a more direct method £472,298 x 1.05 = £495,912.90

    d) If month 4 sales = £465,837 and month 2 sales = £459,578 the difference is £465,837 - £459,578 = £6,259 i.e Month 4 sales is higher than month 2 sales by £6,259

    I managed to work it out in the end, and also passed the exam last Tuesday. However, thank you Nat for taking the time out to respond.
