Required: 1. Is American Eagle’s company size increasing? To answer, calculate the percentage in total assets and percentage change in net sales for the most recent year. a. The percentage in total assets = (Jan 31, 2015 total assets- Feb 1, 2014 total assets)/ (Feb 1, 2014 total assets) = (\$1,696,908- \$1,694,164)/ \$1,694,164 = 0.0016…(0.16%) b. Percentage change in net sales = (Jan 31, 2015 total net revenue- Feb 1, 2014 total net revenue)/ (Feb 1, 2014 total net revenue) = (\$3,282,867-\$3,305,802)/ \$3,305,802 = -0.0069…(-0.69%) c.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
