Problem 6-14  (45 minutes) 1. Number of Leagues  (X) Total Cost  (Y) 5 $13,000 2 $7,000 4 $10,500 6 $14,000 3 $10,000 A spreadsheet application such as Excel or a statistical software  package can be used to compute the slope and intercept of the  least-squares regression line for the above data. The results are: Intercept (fixed cost). .................. $4,100 Slope (variable cost per unit). ..... $1,700 R 2 ................................................ 0.96 Therefore, the variable cost per league is $1,700 and the fixed cost  is $4,100 per year. Note that the R 2  is 0.96, which means that 96% of the variation in  cost is explained by the number of leagues. This is a very high R and indicates a very good fit. 2. Y = $4,100 + $1,700X 3. The expected total cost for 7 leagues would be: Fixed cost. .............................................................
