The two of them accumulated the following data for the past 14 months (production volume is presented in units):

A. Using the high/low method, what is the company’s utility cost equation?
B. What would be the expected utility cost of producing 120,000 units? (The relevant range is 85,000 to 125,000 units of production.)
C. Using the data shown and a spreadsheet program, perform a regression analysis. Discuss any differences in the results and the potential impact on decisionmaking.
