…16/22Linear regression is a tool to look at relationships between variables. In thesimple regression you have a dependent and independent variable. It is basedon a cause effect and the independent is the cause and the dependent is theeffect. The formula that is used from the regression is Y=a=bx. a= the interceptand b = the slope. You can then use this formula to predict future periods. Forexample if you have 15 periods of information for two variables and want topredict the 18th period you would input 18 in place of x. This method ispreferred to others in question 8 when you want to predict for a future monthinstead of just the next month. All the ones listed in question 8 can only predictthe next month and not future months. in order for one to assess if there is ameaningful regression relationship you would look at the R2and multiple of R.

For example,a company that I called on, Radio Engineering manufactures cameras and othertypes of technical equipment and over the years they have been able to keep upwith the technology changes and it has helped grow their business by havingrepeat orders and new customers based off their reputation for providing aquality product. The company will bring in experts and research teams toconsult on their products and services and by implementing a good strategy forquality can help improve the customer relationship.Brittany ButlerThread:Week 6 Question 9Post:Week 6 Question 9Author:Status:PublishedWhat is linear regression forecasting?
