Louis Katz, a cost accountant at Papalote Plastics, Inc. (PPI), is analyzing the manufacturing
costs of a molded plastic telephone handset produced by PPI. Louis's independent variable is
production lot size (in 1,000's of units), and his dependent variable is the total cost of the lot (in
\$100's). Regression analysis of the data yielded the following tables.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics produced consumer price indexes for several different
categories. Shown here are the percent changes in consumer price indexes over a period of 20
year for food, shelter, apparel, and fuel oil. Also displayed are the percentage changes in
consumer prices indexes for all commodities. You did the multiple regression analysis to develop
a model that attempts to predict all commodities by the other four variables and the results are
displayed below.
