(Note well: (1) use spreadsheet software such as MS Excel to generate the responses to (i) and (ii) below. (2) the “time” variable used in the analysis should be year since 1990) i. Use linear functional form to predict the expected demand in that year. ii. Use the exponential functional form to predict the expected demand in that year. iii. What are the concerns with using trend analysis for demand estimation?
