### NRTS Test2 Q9

Basically the thing is from 2004 to 2003 there is percentage change on previous year so you get the figure for 2003 as follows: 25,000 / (1+0.08) = 23,148.14; but then question states the number of units sold in region D in 2002 WAS 20% LESS THAN the number of units sold in 2003, and that is way you reduce it by 20% that is 23,148.14 * (1-0.20) = 18,518.51. So, you do not use reverse percentage if there is stated LESS THAN you just reduce figure by given percentage.
