Hello,

Can anybody explain how I would work out the following tasks please?

You are the sales accountant for the North East region and you have been given the following figures to analyse:

Newcastle: £456,853

Middlesbrough: £235,754

Whitby: £346,843

Scarborough: £461,214

What percentage of total sales does Newcastle contribute (rounded to 2 decimal places)?

What branch has made approximately 32.97% more sales than Whitby?

Thanks very much

Debbie

320AAT StudentI looked at it like this. Who has sales greater than Whitby? Newcastle and Scarborough.

How much are the sales of Newcastle and Scarborough greater than Whitby?

Divide Newcastle by Whitby = 1.3171 (assuming Whitby sales are 100% and the difference is the figure we're looking for 31.71% so not Newcastle)

Divide Scarborough by Whitby = 1.3297 so 32.97% greater
