# Regression Analysis : Interpretation of slope

12.8 (a) Interpret the slope of the fitted regression Sales = 842 − 37.5 Price. (b) If Price = 20, what is the prediction for Sales? (c) Would the intercept be meaningful if this regression represents DVD sales at Blockbuster?

12.9 (a) Interpret the slope of the fitted regression Home Price = 125,000 + 150 Square Feet. (b) What is the prediction for Home Price if Square Feet = 2,000? (c) Would the intercept be meaningful if this regression applies to home sales in a certain subdivision?
