Moonstar Company has the experience over the past five quarters which is given below:
Units produced Electricity cost ($)
27,000 101,000
32,000 120,000
31,000 116,000
20,000 84,000
22,000 90,000
1) Find out the equation for electricity cost (Y) as a function of units produced (X) using the high-low method. Suppose a linear function.
2) Using your equation, estimate electricity cost at the volume of 29,000 units produced.
