Husky used annual observations from 20 prior years to estimate each of the four equations. Following are a definition of the variables used in the four equations and a statistical summary of these equations: St = Forecasted sales in dollars for Lockit in period t St–1 = Actual sales in dollars for Lockit in period t – 1 Gt = Forecasted U.S. gross domestic product in period t Gt–1 = Actual U.S. gross domestic product in period t – 1 Nt–1 = Lockit’s net income in period t – 1 Required: 1. Write Equations 2 and 4 in the form Y = a + bx. 2. If actual sales are $1,500,000 in 2009, what would be the forecasted sales for Lockit in 2010?
