Q1: from the pie chart, canned goods are 18% of the total sale of 200,000 dollars. Thus, its value is 0.18*200,000 = 36,000 dollars (D)

Q2: prepared meals are roughly 17,000 dollars out of a total of 200,000, thus the percentage is (17,000/200,000)*100 = 8.5% (B)

Q3: that's a tricky one. If the sales of bakery tripled in the second quarter, it means they become 0.06*200,000 = 12,000 times three, 36,000 dollars. Now, we have to pay attention that although all the other sales stay the same, the one of bakery increased by 24,000 dollars between the two quarters. Than, when computing the ratio we have to pay attention to increase the denominator by 24,000.
In other words, the share of bakery sales in the second quarter is 36,000/(200,000+24,000)*100 = 16.1%. (C)
