From 2000 to 2010, the company which had the greatest net increase in the average number of visits per week was Company F, from 4,000 to 70,000, resulting in a net increase of 66,000. This is easily noticeable because all other companies had 40,000 visits or less even at the end of the period.

The company with the least net increase was Company E, going from 300 to 9,000, resulting in a net increase of 8,700. This is also easily noticeable because all other companies showed an increase from high hundreds or low thousands to tens of thousands over that period.

The question you are referring to is a different one. The original question asks about the greatest and the least net increases, while the question you are referring to asks about the greatest and the least percentage increases. Please post a screenshot of the question such that the entire graph and all the text are visible. I'll repost it as a separate topic and explain.
