the number of tires sold is a linear function of the amount of money invested in advertising.
He randomly selects 6 months of data consisting of tire sales (in thousands of tires) and
advertising expenditures (in thousands of dollars). Based on the data set with 6 observations,
the simple linear regression model yielded the following results.
