As compared to its first year of operation, ABC company grew 8% in the second year and an additional 2% per year for the next two years. If total growth for years 2-4 was \$45,000 over the first year’s sales of \$150,000, how much did ABC grow in year 2?

1. year 2 grew by 8% of 150000 = 12000
the rest of the years don't matter. Also, I think the \$45K growth figure is bogus, at 2%/year

It would have to grow at over 6%/year over years 2-4 to get from 150K to 195K after 4 years.

Or is the problem poorly worded?
