Question;Problem 5-15;1.;Data collected on the yearly demand for 50-pound bags of;fertilizer at Wallace Garden Supply are shown in the following table. Develop a;three-year moving average to forecast sales. Then estimate demand again with a;weighted moving average in which sales in the most recent year are given a;weight of 2 and sales in the other two years are each given the weight of 1.;Which method do you think is best?;Problem 5-17;5-18 Sales of Cool- Man air;conditioners have grown steadily during the past five years;YEAR SALES;1 450;2 495;3 518;4 563;5 584;6?;The sales manager had predicted;before the business started, that year 1? s sales would be 410 air;conditioners.
