Part A. Sales: 2007 15,000,000 lb 2008 15,000,000 lb(0.96) = 14,400,000 lb 2009 14,400,000 lb(0.96) = 13,824,000 lb Price: 2007 $1.50/lb 2008 $1.50/lb * 1.06 = $1.59/lb 2009 $1.59/lb * 1.06 = $1.69/lb Dollars earned in 2007: 15,000,000 lb * $1.50/lb = $22,500,000 Dollars earned in 2009: 13,824,000 lb * $1.69/lb = $23,362,560 Difference: $23,362,560 - $22,500,000 = $862,560
