Use root-mean-squared error (RMSE) to evaluate these two forecasts.;11. a. Plot the data presented in Exercise 7 to examine the possible existence of trend and seasonality in the data.;b. Prepare four separate smoothing models to examine the full-service restaurant sales data using the monthly data.;1. A simple smoothing model;2. Holt?s model;3. Winters? model;c. Examine the accuracy of each model by calculating the root-mean-squared error for each during the historical period. Explain carefully what characteristics of the original data led one of these models to minimize the root-mean-squared error.;13. The data in the table below are for retail sales in book stores by quarter.;a. Plot these data and examine the plot. Does this view of the data suggest a particular smoothing model? Do the data appear to be seasonal? Explain.;b. Use a smoothing method to forecast the next four quarters. Plot the actual and forecast values.;**duplicate Figure 3.13
