I need assistance with assignment. Please provide explanations for solving it. Use exponential smoothing to forecast Augusts' income. Assume that the initial forecast for February is $65,000. The smoothing constant selected is a = 0.1. Month Income ($1000s) February 70.0 March 68.5 April 64.8 May 71.7 June 7

Find the linear regression for the time series

Take your data and arrange it in the order you collected it. Count the total number of observations you have, and label this number N. Then create another set of data starting from one and increasing by one until you reach N. For example, if you have 10 observations, then your new set of data would be (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

Regression Line and Confidence Intervals using R

See the attached file. The question asks to fit a regression line for an independent variable and its dependent variable response. Data needs to be plotted in R (with code) and regression line. Confidence intervals for different responses is also needed. Here X is the predictor (independent variable), and Y is the respon

Multiple Regression as Predicting Techniques

How can multiple regression be used as a predicting (not a forecasting) technique? Are there principles to be wary of when predicting (e.g., the influence of outliers, predicting outside of the range of given values, or extrapolating)?

Scatter Plots, Pearson's Correlation, Regresssion

Question 1 Show us a scatterplot between two interval level variables. (Use Excel to chart them.) Are the results bunched together or far apart? Is the relationship linear?

In 2009, the New York Yankees won 103 baseball games during the regular season. The table on the next page lists the number of victories (W), the earnedrun- average (ERA), and the batting average (AVG) of each team in the American League. The ERA is one measure of the effectiveness of the pitching staff, and a lower number is better. The batting average is one measure of effectiveness of the hitters, and a higher number is better.
