Demand for stereo headphones and MP3 players for joggers has caused Nina Industries to grow almost 50 percent over the past year. The number of joggers continues to expand, so Nina expects demand for headsets to also expand, because, as yet, no safety laws have been passed to prevent joggers from wearing them. Demand for the players for last year was as follows:

MONTH  DEMAND (UNITS)

January 4,130

February  4,230

March  3,930

April  4,330

May  4,930

June  4,630

July  5,230

August   4,830

September   5,330

October   5,630

November  6,230

December   5,930

a. Using linear regression analysis, what would you estimate demand to be for each month next year? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answers to 2 decimal places.)

b. To be reasonably confident of meeting demand, Nina decides to use 2 standard errors of estimate for safety. How many additional units should be held to meet this level of confidence? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)
