WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOWRegression analysisis a statistical method that measures the average amount of change in the dependent variable associated with a unit change in one or more independent variables.The other answers are incorrect.
The high-low method is the simplest form of quantitative analysis to “fit” a line to data points using the highest and lowest observed values of the cost driver within the relevant range.The account analysis method is a method of cost estimation that estimates cost functions by classifying various cost accounts as variable, fixed, or mixed in regards to the identified level of activity.The industrial engineering method is a method of cost estimation that estimates cost functions by analyzing the relationship between inputs and outputs in physical terms.
