    A regression model relating x, number of sales persons at a branch office, to y, annual sales at the office ($1000s), has been developed. The computer output from a regression analysis of the data follows.

    The regression equation is

    Y = 80.0 + 50.0X

    How many branch offices were involved in the study?

    Compute the F statistic and test the significance of the relationship at a .05 level of significance.

    Predict the annual sales at the Memphis branch office. This branch has 12 sales persons.

    The following regression equation was obtained using the five independent variables.

    The regression equation is
    sales = - 19.7 - 0.00063 outlets + 1.74 cars + 0.410 income + 2.04 age - 0.034 bosses
