A:

Answer:Absolute change = 2,960,000Relative change = 63.5%Step-by-step explanation:An absolute change is the simple difference between the two values. In this case, the difference between the number of travel books sold and the number of humor books sold. Absolute change: 7,620,000-4,660,000= 2,960,000A relative change is a comparison between the two values but expressed as a percentage value. Relative change: ((value2-value1)/ value 1 )*100%Relative change: ((7,620,000-4,660,000)/ 4,660,000 )*100%= 63.51%Rounded to the nearest tenth: 63.5%
