(TCO E) The management of JAL Airlines assumes a direct relationship between advertising expenditures and the number of passengers who choose to fly JAL. The following data is collected over the past 15 months of performance by JAL Airlines. Note that X=ADEXP (Advertising Expenditures in $1,000s), and Y=Passengers (number of passengers in 1,000s).
