Help in forecasting for MTD

Hi there, been stuck with this for a couple of days now and would like to know how to solve it. 

 

I need to determine the forecast of sales for a particular month based on the average MTD sales. So for example if sales from the 1st of May to the 20th of May is 300,000. The average per day would be 15,000 and the forecast for the entire month would be 450,000.

 

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
