Uden supply Company declared a 31% increase in gross profit. The increase stated as a percentage is a misstatement and if calculated accordingly would result in a gross profit of $3,348 in thousands. However, Terrill believes that gross profit will be down 2% for 20x4 and according to calculations, the expected gross profit would then be $7,701. Gross profit for 20x3 is $3100.
