Q = + 10,000 – 60P + 300A + 50 c P - 100 C A +50 I

(7400) (25) (120) (22) (68) (28)

R2 = 0.74 F = 28.56

The variables and their assumed values are

Q = Quantity

P = Price of basic model = 500

A =Advertising expenditures = 50

c P price of the competitor’s product = 600

C A = competitor’s advertising expenditures = 30
