data

Models help us describe and summarize relationships between variables. Understanding how process variables relate to each other helps businesses predict and improve performance. For example, a marketing manager might be interested in modeling the relationship between advertisement expenditures and sales revenues.

Consider the dataset below and respond to the questions that follow:

Advertisement ($’000)   Sales ($’000)
1068    4489
1026    5611
767      3290
885      4113
1156    4883
1146    5425
892      4414
938      5506
769      3346
677      3673
1184    6542
1009    5088
