### Problem Solving with Excel Week 4 Quiz Answers

#### Quiz 1: Statistical Forecasting Quiz

Q1. You are asked to predict total store sales based on the number of visitors to the store. You are provided a data set containing sales and store visits data over time. What is a good way to make this prediction using these data points in Excel?

- Standard deviation
- Regression analysis
- Covariance
- R-Squared

Q2. What statistical method do we use to quantify the relationship between changes in the independent variable and changes in the dependent variable?

**R-Squared**- Covariance
- Linear regression
- Slope

Q3. What do we use as a measurement of the average dispersion of values in a dataset around the average value?

- Multicollinearity
- Standard deviation
**Correlation**- Covariance

Q4. How should we interpret a correlation coefficient of 1?

- No strong correlation between the two variables
- For every 1-unit increase in one variable, we observe a 1-unit decrease in the other variable
- For every 1-unit increase in one variable, we observe a 1-unit increase in the other variable
- None of the above

Q5. How do we interpret the Y-intercept of our linear regression?

- A measure of the average dispersion of values in a dataset around the average value.
**An indication of the strength and direction of the relationship between our independent and dependent variables.**- A number describing both the steepness and direction of the line graph of our linear regression function.
- The value which cannot be explained by our regression analysis, and is constant despite our measured relationship between variables. This also represents the value of our dependent variable when your independent variable is equal to zero.

Q6. You’ve completed a linear regression model using in-store sales data to store visits data. You observe a strong, positive correlation between the independent variable and the dependent variable. The r-squared value (i.e. the coefficient of determination) is close to 1. Standard deviation of the data set is quite low. It is reasonable to conclude that sales increased because of increases in in-store traffic?

- True. Linear regression analysis with the above outcomes suggests a strong, causal relationship.
**False. Linear regression analysis with the above outcomes does not imply any causal relationship.**

#### Index Match Quiz Answers

Q1. Index Match allows you to complete which of the following functions?

Q3. When you use the match formula which of the following is the expected outcome?

- The lookup value
- The sum of all values that match the lookup value
- The value of the column next to the matching output of the lookup value
- The position within an array of a matching lookup value

Q4. Which of the following list the correct steps to use to lookup a value based on a horizontal lookup value and a vertical lookup value?

- Use two match formulas, the first to look up the corresponding row value and then column value
- Index an array and use a match formula to lookup the row position to a corresponding lookup value and then use another match formula to lookup the corresponding column position of another lookup value
**Use sumifs, with the first criteria being the vertical lookup value and the second criteria being the horizontal lookup value**- Use a Vlookup and AND function in combination. In the Vlookup for the lookup value use the AND function to list both the horizontal and vertical criteria
