I think this way 2000-2005 years /1990-1995 years =1.52*2=3.04
if we divide 4640 to 1530 we get that approx. 3.04
right?

do you have any other thoughts how to solve it?

Hi,
This is how I arrived at the answers:-
Let the sales for the period 1990-95 be 'x'
Therefore, the sales for the period 1995-2000 is '1.52x'
Now, total sales for the period is 'x+1.52x=2.52x=3843'
Solving we get x=1525.
Since the question asks for the closest approximation we can approximate the value of x to 1530.
Therefore, sales for the period 1990-95 is 1530 (after closest approximation)
and, sales for the period 1995-2000 is 2318.
Hence, the sales for the period 2000-05 is 2x2318=4636 which after approximation would be 4640.
hope it helps.
