Using the Minitab info write the straight line(least squares) equation and the correlation coefficent.
The regression equation is:
sales=27.2+0.252 exp

    I ran your data through an online calculator and the regression equation looks correct. See below:

    7 data pairs (x,y):
    ( 4.00 , 19.0 ); ( 12.0 , 42.0 ); ( 9.00 , 28.0 ); ( 6.00 , 31.0 ); ( 10.0 , 39.0 ); ( 30.0 , 30.0 ); ( 7.00 , 21.0 );

    y = a + bx where:
    a= 27.2
    b= 0.252

    Correlation coefficient:

    r = 0.259 (p = 0.575)
