Can someone please explain how you can get to an accuracy of one digit when the grpah is so vague?

How was 49.13 calculated? And how was 913.63?

Seriously? How did you get such decimal number accuracy through that graph? Please don't scare us that answer expected from us will also be expected to such accuracy. And I am perplexed as to how you derived to the solution.

I didn't get the above question so kindly explain from where we get the value 913.63.

Exactly just the difference 1 pt. In this vague graph plus the explanation is also not clear.

The exact value of turnover of the companies are not given so it is impossible to solve this problem, But here the turnover of GM is taken as 913.63 and the turnover of Maruti in year 2001-2002 is 681.98 and for year 2002-2003 is 731.11,

Now we can calculate the difference of turnover of Maruti in two years which is(731.11-681.98) 49.13,now we can add this amount in turnover of GM in 2002-2003 to find the final result.

The result is 913.63+49.13 = 962.76.

GM 950 2001-2002, 0.13 % growth maruti (650-750/750=0.13).
950 + 0.13% = 962.35.

How 950 and how come 913.63?

Lucky said:   5 years ago
Quantum means diff between turn over in years so we have to subtract 731.11 with 681.98 and it gives 49.13.

After we have to add up 913.63 with 49.13 to get the answer.
