As a starting point for further analysis, Paige Jennings,the controller, wants to test different forecasting methods and then use the best one to forecast quarterly expenses for 2019. The relevant data for the previous three years is as follows:

3 13,200 3 13,300 3 13,800

4 15,600 4 15,900 4 16,700

The result of a simple regression analysis using all 12 data points yielded the following:
