Sales of the product (in thousands of dollars) and the levels of expenditure (in thousands of dollars) on both types of advertising are recorded during the test month. The collected data are given in the attached Excel spreadsheet ads2.xls (see Dr. Rajan Gupta’s post below). a. Specify a suitable multiple regression equation for predicting sales. b. Use Excel to estimate the coefficients of the regression equation. c. Are the estimated slope coefficients statistically significant? Explain. d. Interpret the estimated slope coefficients. e.
