(16 points) In an attempt to predict weekly sales at its coffee shops, Ahab Coffee Inc. ran a regression analysis using as the X variable the square footage of each coffee shop and as the Y variable the shop’s weekly sales in dollars. The MINITAB results are: 

 The regression equation is Weekly Sales = 1612 + 3.11 Square Feet

Predictor             Coef   SE Coef  T    P Constant             1612.5   294.3 5.48 0.003 Store Size (Sq. Ft.) 3.1109  0.3153 9.87 0.000

S = 277.116  R-Sq = 65.6%  R-Sq(adj) = 65.0%
