Work Step by Step
a. change = a - b. So 17.6 - (-121.6) million = 139.2 million dollars b. This is not applicable because the numbers span across 0 and we cannot divide by 0. c. This is change over time. in the question we see time is year. So we put 139.2 which is change and time which is year. So 139.2 million dollars per year.
