This years sales totaled $90,000 for August and$96,000 for September. If the planned seasonal sales distribution is as follows, figure the dollar sales for the remaining months of the period:

August 15% $90,000 September 16%$96,000

October 14%

November 19%

December 24%

January 12%

From the figures given, using their difference, we see 1% = $6,000. So take the magnitude of the percentage given for the remaining months and multiply them by$6,000 to find the sales for that month.
