#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

Mean number of employees from 2004 to 2006 = (298+302+316)/3 = 305.3.
To calculate the index for a year, say 2007, we will use the formula in this way = (323/305.3) * 100 = 105.8.
Hence, the simple indices for the given years are given below:

 Year Employees Simple Index 2007 323 105.8 2008 336 110.0 2009 324 106.1 2010 297 97.3 2011 290 95.0 2012 300 98.3 2013 308 100.9 2014 302 98.9 2015 326 106.8

Percent increase in number of employees = ((326 - 305.3)/305.3) * 100% = 6.77% = 7%.
