Solution

The annual % increase in exports is as shown below:-
2003 = $$\frac{150-112.5}{112.5} = 33.33\%$$
2004 = $$0\%$$
2005 = $$\frac{200-150}{150} = 33.33\%$$
2006 = -ve
2007 = $$\frac{200-175}{175} = 14.28\%$$
2008 = $$\frac{275-200}{200} = 37.5\%$$
2009 = -ve
2010 = $$\frac{262.5-200}{200} = 31.5\%$$.
Thus, In 2007 was the fifth largest annual percentage increase in exports recorded.
