Rank in order (Highest to Lowest) change in operating expenses from year 1 to year 2
Question: Rank in order from highest (1) to lowest (5) in terms of the change in operating expenses
Key: m = million
A - year1=12.8m & year2=9.9m
B - year1=25.1m & year2=46.4m
C - year1=32.8m & year2=35.6m
D - year1=50.6m & year2=48.8m
E - year1=33.9m & year2=53m
Is that order correct?
Is the change in op. Expenses for A from year 1 to year 2 a positive one and if so would that rank higher than B ,which the op. Expenses went up.
I do not know whether I should work out the percentage change from year 1 to year 2 then rank it or just the difference in the figure change from year 1 to year 2 according to the question asked.
Would really appreciate someone's help. Thanks in advance.
