What was the value of sales of Anderson Books in 2000?

(1) The sales of Anderson Books grew by \$25,000 each year from 1990 to 2000.

(2) The value of sales of Anderson Books doubled between 1990 and 2000.

The answer choice was C. What I don't understand is why you do not need to know the original value of sales to answer this problem?

Thanks for the assistance.

x = sales in 1990

x + (25000)*10 = sales in 2000

2x = sales in 2000

2x = x + 25000*10

x = 250,000

2 * 250,000 = sales in 2000
