Use the Week 5 Data Set to create and calculate the following in Excel®:

 

Conduct a goodness of fit analysis which assesses orders of a specific item by size (expected) and items you received by size (observed).

Conduct a hypothesis test with the objective of determining if there is a difference between what you ordered and what you received at the .05 level of significance.

Identify the null and alternative hypotheses.

What is your conclusion?

Generate a scatter plot, the correlation coefficient, and the linear equation that evaluates whether a relationship exists between the number of times a customer visited the store in the past 6 months and the total amount of money the customer spent.

Set up a hypothesis test to evaluate the strength of the relationship between the two variables.

Use a level of significance of .05.

Use the regression line formula to forecast how much a customer might spend on merchandise if that customer visited the store 13 times in a 6 month period.

Consider the average monthly sales of 2014, $1310, as your base then

Calculate indices for each month for the next two years (based on the 24 months of data).

Graph a time series plot.

In the Data Analysis Toolpak, use Excel’s Exponential Smoothing option.

Apply a damping factor of .5, to your monthly sales data,  then create a new time series graph that compares the original and the revised monthly sales data.
