A regression analysis between sales (in $1000) and advertising (in $100) resulted in the following least squares line: = 75 + 6x. This implies that if advertising is $800, then the predicted amount of sales (in dollars) is:
A) $4875
B) $123,000
C) $487,500
D) $12,300

the function of sales (in $1000) f(x) is given by 75+6x where x is advertising dollars in $100.
f(x) = 75+6x
when advertising dollars = $800, x=8
substituting in the above equation,
f(x) = 75+6*8 = 123
So sales = 123 * $1000 = ??
