Answer: The total sales in 2 weeks was of Rs. 685889. The sales in the second week was more than the sale in the first week by Rs.115647.
Let's interpret the information mathematically.
The value of sales in the first week of June = Rs. 285121
The value of sales in the second week of June = Rs. 400768
The total value of sales in two weeks = 285121 + 400768 = Rs. 685889
The sale in the second week is higher as 400768 is greater than 285121.
The hike of sales in the second week = 400768 - 285121 = Rs. 115647.
