Old price = 10, old sales = 10 --> old revenue = 100;
New price = 9, new sales = 11 --> new revenue = 99.

Revenue decreased by 1%.

Answer: B.

New price = 9, new sales = 11 --> new revenue = 99.

Revenue decreased by 1%.

Answer: B.



Will the general formula used for calculating successive increase or decrease of percentage of an item be applicable here? the formula A+B+ AB/100 (Where A and B are the successive increase of decrease)

I am confused because through that method as well, the answer is B.

\(+10 - 10 + \frac{(+10)(-10)}{100}\)

\(= 0 - 1\)

\(= -1\) , Answer must be (B)
