Explanation

If A is the dollar amount of sales at Store T for 2007, then 8 percent of A, or 0.08A is the amount of decrease from 2007 to 2008.

Thus A - 0.08A = 0.92A is the dollar amount for 2008.

Therefore, the desired percent can be obtained by dividing A by 0.92A which equals The \frac{A}{0.92A}, which equals \frac{1}{0.92}, which equals 1.0869565...

Expressed as a percent and rounded to the nearest 0.1 percent, this number is 108.7%.

Thus, the correct answer is 108.7% (or equivalent).
