Ok, then the answer is:
For 2008 the dollar amount of sales at Store R was greater than that at each of the other four stores.
Since we have no information about the dollar amount of sales of each store, we can't say which one is the greatest in 2008. Even though Store R has experienced two consecutive increases, this does not give any information about the actual amount of money that could be even lower than others.
The dollar amount of sales at Store S for 2008 was 22 percent less than that for 2006.
The percent decrease of sales at Store S is not computed as the sum of the two decreases (-7 - 15), but it is computed as ((1-0.07)(1-0.15)X)-X/X*100, where X is the amount of sales. The result is -20.95% that is different from 22%.
The dollar amount of sales at Store R for 2008 was more than 17 percent greater than that for 2006.
Here the question says if the increase has been
more than 17 percent. Then, using the same formula as above we can compute ((1+0.05)(1+0.12)X-X)/X*100 = 17.6%, which is greater than 17%.
Thus, the answer is C!
