@Sripadh.

The 1/6 is the number of all the sales in 2000. It's from B1 to B6 that's why you divide with 6.

If it's sale B1 to B3 then you divide with 1/3. That's how it goes. If the sales is up to 10 and it says to find it per cent.

Then B1 to B10, it will be 1/10. You divide the total by 10.

Add all branches in (2000)/total no of branches in (2000)

80 + 75 + 95 + 85 + 75 + 70/6 = 80.

80 + 75 + 95 + 85 + 75 + 70/6 = 80.

Avg = total/no of branches.

= 80 + 75 + 95 + 85 + 75 + 70(for year 2000)/6.

= 80 + 75 + 95 + 85 + 75 + 70(for year 2000)/6.

I think 1/6 for 2000 and for 2011.

I think 11/6 so, I get the answer 546.66.
