## Given that

The value of books sold in the first week = Rs. 2, 85,891
The value of books sold in the second week = Rs. 4, 00,768

## Find out

We need to find out how much was the sale for the two weeks together and in which week was the sale greater and by how much

## Solution

Total books sold in the first week and second week

We can get the total by adding the given data

Hence,

Rs. 2, 85,891 + Rs. 4, 00,768 = Rs. 6, 86,659
Hence the total sale for the complete two weeks together= Rs. 6, 86,659

Since the amount Rs 4, 00, 768, greater than the amount Rs 2, 85,891

Therefore the sale of the second week is greater than that of the first-week books sold in the first week

To find how many more books sold we need to subtract the values
More books sold in second week = Rs. 4, 00,768 -Rs. 2, 85,891= Rs 1,14,877

Therefore, the amount of Rs1,14,877 more books were sold in the second week.

The total sale for the complete two weeks together= Rs. 6, 86,659

The sale of the second week is greater than that of the first-week books sold in the first week.

The amount of Rs1,14,877 more books were sold in the second week.
