Question;For this module, you will;complete the following problems from the textbook;? Chapter 4, pages 146-147;Problems 30, 31, and 32 using the Data Analysis;Add-In for Microsoft Excel;? Chapter 5, pages 188-189;Problems 25 and 31 using either Excel?s Data;Analysis Add-In or Excel QM;Chap 3#30 pg 146 A sample of nine public;universities and nine private universities wastaken. The total cost for the;year (including room and board) and the median SAT score (maximum total is;2400) at each school were recorded. It was felt that schools with higher median;SAT scores would have a better reputation and would charge more tuition as a;result of that. The data is in the table below. Use regression to help answer;the following questions based on this sample data. Do schools with higher SAT;scores charge more in tuition and fees? Are private schools more expensive than;public schools when SAT scores are taken into consideration? Discuss how;accurate you believe these results are using information related the regression;models.;Category Total Cost Median;SAT;Public 21,700 1990;Public 15,600 1620;Public 16,900 1810;Public 15,400 1540;Public 23,100 1540;Public 21,400 1600;Public 16,500 1560;Public 23,500 1890;Public 20,200 1620;Private 30,400 1630;Private 41,500 1840;Private 36,100 1980;Private 42,100 1930;Private 27,100 2130;Private 34,800 2010;Private 32,100 1590;Private 31,800 1720;Private 32,100 1770;# 31 pg 146;In 2008, the total payroll;for the New York Yankees was $209.1 million, while the total payroll for the;Tampa By Rays was about $43.8 million about 1/5th of that of the Yankees.

Based on;results discuss how accurate the model is. Use the model to predict the number;of victories for a team with a payroll of $79million;#32;In 2009, the New York;Yankees won 103 baseball games during the regular season. The table on the next;page lists the number of victories (W), the earned-run- average (ERA), and the;batting average (AVG) of each team in the American League.

Use 3, 2 and 1 for the weights of the most recent, second most;recent, and third most recent periods, respectively. For example, if you were;forecasting the demand for February, November would have a weight of 1;December would have a weight of 2, and January would have a weight of 3.;(c) Evaluate the accuracy;of each of these methods.;(d) What other factors;might R.
