The district manager of Jasons, a large discount electronics chain, is investigating why certain stores in her region are performing better than others. She believes that three factors are related to total sales: the number of competitors in the region, the population in the surrounding area, and the amount spent on advertising. From her district, consisting of several hundred stores, she selects a random sample of 30 stores. For each store she gathered the following information. sales last year (in $ thousands). of competitors in the region. of the region (in millions). expense (in $ thousands). The sample data were run on MINITAB, with the following results. X3 _ advertising X2 _ population X1 _ number Y _ total n _ 20, R2.

Suppose that the sales manager of a large automotive parts distributor wants to estimate as early as April the total annual sales of a region. On the basis of regional sales, the total sales for the company can also be estimated. If, based on past experience, it is found that the April estimates of annual sales are reasonably accurate, then in future years the April forecast could be used to revise production schedules and maintain the correct inventory at the retail outlets. Several factors appear to be related to sales, including the number of retail outlets in the region stocking the company?s parts, the number of automobiles in the region registered as of April 1, and the total personal income for the first quarter of the year. Five independent variables were finally selected as being the most important (according to the sales manager). Then the data were gathered for a recent year. The total annual sales for that year for each region were also recorded. Note in the following table that for region 1 there were 1,739 retail outlets stocking the company?s automotive parts, there were 9,270,000 registered automobiles in the region as of April 1 and so on. The sales for that year were $37,702,000 Annual Number of Automobiles Personal Age of Sales Retail Registered Income Automobiles Number of ($ millions), Outlets, (millions), ($ billions), (years), Supervisors, Y X1 X2 X3 X4 X5 37.702 1,739 9.27 85.4 3.5 9.0 24.196 1,221 5.86 60.7 5.0 5.0 32.055 1,846 8.81 68.1 4.4 7.0 3.611 120 3.81 20.2 4.0 5.0 17.625 1,096 10.31 33.8 3.5 7.0 45.919 2,290 11.62 95.1 4.1 13.0 29.600 1,687 8.96 69.3 4.1 15.0 8.114 241 6.28 16.3 5.9 11.0 20.116 649 7.77 34.9 5.5 16.0 12.994 1,427 10.92 15.1 4.1 10.0 a.

Banner Mattress and Furniture Company wishes to study the number of credit applications received per day for the last 300 days. The information is reported on the next page. Nonparametric Methods: Chi-Square Applications 665 Number of Credit Frequency Applications (Number of Days) 0 50 1 77 2 81 3 48 4 31 5 or more 13 To interpret, there were 50 days on which no credit applications were received, 77 days on which only one application was received, and so on. Would it be reasonable to conclude that the population distribution is Poisson with a mean of 2.0? Use the .05 significance level. Hint: To find the expected frequencies use the Poisson distribution with a mean of 2.0. Find the probability of exactly one success given a Poisson distribution with a mean of 2.0. Multiply this probability by 300 to find the expected frequency for the number of days in which there was exactly one application. Determine the expected frequency for the other days in a similar manner,Thanks & Happy Holidays, MARIA,Thanks Natalia
