do not try to finish this homework assignment without understanding the concepts involved with forecasting using statistical regression. Once you know how regression works, download the attached Excel Template onto your computer. You will utilize this template for your assignment . Begin by opening the Excel File and reading through the Scenario at the top of the page. Then, notice the tabs at the bottom of the workbook that constitute your homework assignment. There are three different task groups for you to work on over the next two weeks. Next, look at each section in the Excel book and scroll down through the Spreadsheet; you will notice in the far left column that there are several tasks for you to complete on each Tab. Pace yourself and finish some assignments in the first week; leaving all this homework for week seven can be dangerous.

Next, hyperlinked directly below are several YouTube videos that will aid you in completing the assignment tasks. They are all short (under 10 minutes), so watch them all in succession before you start your homework. Then, as you begin each Tab in the Excel Workbook, keep a copy of the appropriate video handy; each assignment almost exactly mirrors these videos, albeit with different scenarios.
