approximate percentage increase/decrease in the sales of 3232-inch LED Television sets in 2017 compared to that in 2013

=(175-112)*100/112=56.25%

Which is near to 56% rather than 57%

So Right answer is B 56%

For 32-inch LED in 2017 sale is 175 and in 2013 it is 112, so clearly it is percentage increase from 2013 to 2017.

Therefore, formula for percentage increase is:

Increase = New number - Original number

Percentage increase = Increase ÷ Original number * 100

%increase= (175-112)/112*100

Therefore it is 56%.

Hence option B is correct.
