Main Group :  Sales Account

……………..Sub Group : Television Sale

………………………….Sub Group of Television Sale : Samsung Television Sale

………………………….Sub group of Television Sale : LG Television sale

………………………….Sub Group of Television Sale : Sony Television Sale

In the above hierarchy of groups you can easily identify the following things.

  1. Total sale of the company
  2. Out of the total sale how much is the total television sale
  3. Out of total Television sale what are the total sale of Samsung Tv,LG Tv and Sony Tv.
