Answer: FALSE Explanation: A positive slope of a regression line indicates that costs are higher for higher values of the cost driver. Diff: 2 Terms: regression analysis Objective: 4 AACSB: Reflective thinking 29) The high- low method is more accurate than the regression method of estimating a cost function. Answer: FALSE Explanation: The regression method is Diff: 1 Terms: high-low method, regression analysis Objective: 4 AACSB: Reflective thinking 30) If inaccurate cost estimates are too high, then a company may unknowingly reward a manager for poor performance. Answer: TRUE Diff: 3 Terms: cost estimation Objective: 4 AACSB: Ethical reasoning 31) Simple regression is known as "simple" because it is much less complex than the high-low method. Answer: FALSE Explanation: Simple regression is known as "simple" because it includes only one cost driver. Diff: 2 Terms: simple regression Objective: 4 AACSB: Reflective thinking 32) The high- low method involves choosing the period of highest cost driver activity and the period of lowest cost driver activity. Answer: TRUE Diff: 2 Terms: high-low method Objective: 4 AACSB: Reflective thinking 33) A strength of the high-low method of cost estimation is that the high point and the low point are representative of all data points. Answer: FALSE Explanation: A weakness of the highlow method of cost estimation is that the high point and the low point are not representative of all data points. Diff: 2 Terms: high-low method Objective: 4 AACSB: Reflective thinking 34) In analysis, the term "goodness of fit" indicates the strength of the relationship between the cost driver and the costs. regression Answer: TRUE Diff: 2 Terms: regression analysis Objective: 4 AACSB: Reflective thinking 35) Accurate cost estimation is useful both in understanding past cost relationships and as a means of predicting costs.
