The purpose of regression analysis is to find out the values of parameters for a purpose that cause the purpose to best fit a set of selected data observations. The description of this linear regression test will be explained and analyzed in the paper. The data collected for various teams will help comparing the numbers with the anticipation of getting a reliable and comparable hypothesis test answer. Having enough data will give the test a fare chance to show the results needed for a positive outcome.
In finishing the regression analyses, team D can conclude that there seems to be a linear relationship between the salary affect of

Methodology: We let the independent variable X = frequency of shuttle bus service, and the dependent variable Y = the number of guests visiting the casino. Then it will utilize the linear regression method to determine the relationship between these two variables. By conducting the analysis, the value of the regression coefficient will be determined which the value indicates the correlative degree between these two variables. The positive correlation value means that increase in shuttle bus frequencies will

First of all, model is used to analyze the positive or negative relationship between the price volatility and variable factors. The second model is used to scale the level of impact from effected factors to price changes.
The relationship between the price volatility and four factors is assumed to be linear. And the coefficient of the volume changes reflects the scale of impact on the price volatility. We can use the least square regression for the main measure to analysis relationships between the price volatility and four factors. As the model below shown, the U.S dollar

influence demand for their product or service. By building on the traditional methods of marketing research, they can uses statistical or econometric techniques to include a multitude of independent variables in a multiple regression analysis. Another strength of regression analysis is that a manager can include cross-sectional data, time series data, or a combination of both, which is panel data, in their analysis. This wide range of data points helps to eliminate bias and still enable the manager to advertise their product to the segment of the population where their products are in demand.

It was observed that the easier path is to increase the revenue. Few of the techniques employed were principal axis factoring, reliability test and regression analysis.
On the whole, it was observed that not everyone is interested in paying a premium for beach cleanliness and beach cleanliness in fact is not the primary motivator for the respondents in their decision making process.

the data. As the data collected was expressed quantitatively, descriptive statistics and regression analysis were employed to analyze the data (Yin, 2003). According to (Yin, 2003), descriptive involves the use of measures of dispersion and measures of central tendency to analyze data. Measures of dispersion require computation of kurtosis, skewness and measures of association (r2) (Yin, 2003), the results are then expressed graphically; the slopes in the graphs show the extent to which research variables are related. Measures of central tendency, on the other hand, involve computation of mean, mode and median (Yin, 2003), these are used to indicate the relationship between research variables

its shortterm debt financing. This will be called the substitution effect and implies an inverse relation between short-term debt financing and other current liabilities. In a regression with short-term debt as the dependent variable and current assets and other current liabilities as explanatory variables, the size effect implies that the coefficient of current assets should be positive while the substitution effect implies the coefficient of other current liabilities should be negative. Additionally, short-term debt could be used as permanent source of financing if the debt is continually refinanced as it matures. One reason to use short-term debt as a permanent source of financing is to

as methodology for empirical findings. The analysis clearly indicates that GDP growth increased consequent to liberalization. Trade liberalization does not seem to have affected inflation in the economy. The quantitative analysis also suggests that greater openness has had a favourable effect on economic development. Both real export and imports have increased with greater openness. Liberalization policy certainly improves export of the country which eventually leads higher economic growth after 1990s. The findings of this study can be an interesting example for trade liberalization policy study in developing countries.

PERFORMANCE AND AVERAGE YIELD
The performance of a share is equal to the percentage difference between the initial and final property owner. The average yield value is calculated as the sum of the yield of a share to the number of returns. As far as the Commercial Bank is concerned, the average stock performance for the year 2007 was 0.28% and 2.24% for 2008. Based on the values of the general price index, the average yield for 2007 was 0.26% for 2008 and 1.95%.
