a. horizontal analysis 

A horizontal analysis provides you with a way to compare your numbers from one period to the next, using financial statements from at least two distinct periods.

 Each line item has an entry in a current period column and a prior period column. Those two entries are compared to show both the dollar difference and percentage change between the two periods.
