Expert's post

Explanation

If A is the dollar amount of sales at Store T for 2007, then 8 percent of A, or is the amount of decrease from 2007 to 2008. Thus is 0.08A, A − 0.08A = 0.92A the dollar amount for 2008. Therefore, the desired percent can be obtained by dividing A by 0.92A which is \frac{A}{0.92A} = \frac{1}{0.92} = 1.08 % = 108.7 % _________________
