, prepare a sales report to your supervisor that shows the percentage increase/decrease in sales for all appliances and treatments.  Add a column to the chart to show the percentage change.  Include the chart in your memo.

To calculate the difference you will need to subtract October sales from November sales and divide by October sales.  For example, for the first item, refrigerators, the percentage increase is:

72                 = 43.06%      Limit the decimal places to two.

Calculate Percentage

You can easily calculate the percentage change in Excel by creating a formula.  Symbols for commands are found at
Home on the toolbar.

· Enter the data from the exercise, including the product name.

· From
Home on the toolbar, create the formula:  =SUM(C2-B2)/B2

Note: Line 1 will be the column headings.

· Highlight the percentage column and use the down arrow to fill in the formula for the entire column.

· Press enter.  Results will appear for each appliance.

· To limit the decimal places to two, use the 00 icon found on
Home.

· Then use the percent symbol (%) to change your fraction to a percentage.

· Following is a sample of the steps.

In your memo, identify the product that had the best percentage sales and best unit sales.

Based on the data, make three recommendations for sales, production, store promotions, and/or reordering or stocking appliances.  Remember you are using last year’s sales to plan for the upcoming fall season.  A sample sales report is on page 471.  Be careful and note that you are writing about appliances, not entrees (food).
