So, a number of particular batteries sold in a particular year expressed in thousand will be how much?

Eg. the Number of 35 AH batteries sold in the year 1993 is 84, so how is it 84 expressed in thousand?

Can anyone explain this?

Hi All.

35AH batteries sold in the year 1993 is 84.
35AH batteries sold in the year 1997 is 45.

Difference = 84-45=39.

A number of Different Types of Batteries Sold by a Company Over the Years (Numbers in Thousands)as given in the main question.

39 * 1000 = 39000.

Hope it's clear.

Why we multiply it with 1000?

Rita karad said:   6 years ago
(Numbers in Thousands) that's why its multiplied by 1000.

1000 multiplied because the Answer digit's in thousands.

Pavan said:   6 years ago
Why we multiply by 100? Please explain.

Oreva said:   6 years ago
@Deena when they say difference it means subtraction.

So you subtract the sales of batteries in the years mentioned.

That is why we have 84-45.

Why 84-45? Explain in detail.
