The financial statements of Micro Chip Computer Corporation have been used to calculate the year to year percentage growth rate in net sales. The growth rates have been calculated using an Excel Spreadsheet. The rates have been calculated by taking the difference between sales of two years and dividing the result by the first year. The growth rate for 2004-2005 is calculated by deducting \$11,062 from \$11,933 and dividing the difference \$871 by \$11,062 to arrive at a growth rate of 7.87%. The same method has been applied for calculating the growth rate of 2005-2006 which is -23.06%. The growth rate for 2006-2007 is -33.11% and for 2007-2008 it is 35.71%. Mathematically this formula is shown as:

Percentage growth in net sales = (Current year sales – Previous year sales) / Previous year sales

 Fiscal Years 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 Net Sales \$11,062 \$11,933 \$9,181 \$6,141 \$8,334 Growth Rates 7.87% -23.06% -33.11% 35.71%
