1 Given the following history, use a three-quarter moving average to forecast the demand for the third quarter of this year. Note, the 1st quarter is Jan, Feb, and Mar; 2nd quarter Apr, May, Jun; 3rd quarter Jul, Aug, Sep; and 4th quarter Oct, Nov, Dec. 1 Here are the data for the past 21 months for actual sales of a particular product: Develop a forecast for the fourth quarter using a three-quarter, weighted moving average. Weight the most recent quarter .5, the second most recent .25, and the third .25. Do the problem using quarters, as opposed to forecasting separate months. 1 The following table contains the number of complaints received in a department store for the first 6 months of operation: If a three-month moving average is used to smooth this series, what would have been the forecast for May?
