Had to look for the rest of the details and here is my answer.

Based on the given table of data attached to this question, the best estimate for Korey to quote as expected profits in the next year for his business plan next year would be $19,386.97. Here is the given information of his net year profits. Year Net Profits 1:$14,250.00
2 : $15,390.00 3 :$16,621.20
4 : $17,950.90 5 : ? Hope this answer helps. 2. haileysolis5 says: D.$19,386.97

Step-by-step explanation:

When determining expected profits, one should analyse net profits results from previous years in order to observe a trend or pattern and consequently make a projection. In this case, Koreyâs comic book store has been experiencing a steady 8% growth in net profits in each year for the previous 4 years:

$14,250.00 * 1.08 = 15,390.00\\15,390.00*1.08 = 16,621.20\\16,621.20*1.08=17,950.90$

Therefore, it is fair to assume that the company will continue to experience this steady growth and project an 8% increase in profits for the next year:

$Profits = 17,950.90*1.08=19,386.97$

Year      Net Profit
1            $14,250.00 2$15,390.00
3            $16,621.20 4$17,950.902

We need to get the increase of the net profit of the current year from the previous year.

Percentage increase = (Current year - Previous Year)/ Previous Year    * 100%

Year 2:  (15,390 - 14, 250) / 14,250   * 100% = 0.08 * 100% = 8%
Year 3: (16,621.20 - 15,390) / 15,390 * 100% = 0.08 * 100% = 8%
Year 4: (17,950.90 - 16,621.20) / 16,621.20 * 100% = 0.08 * 100% = 8%

Every year the net income increases by 8%. So, the net income in Year 5 will be:

17,950.90 x 1.08 = 19,386.97  Choice D.
