Prediction the number of deliveries using Exponential smoothing constant for different values and compare it.
A hospital records the number of floral distributions its patients receive each day. For a two week period the records show
15, 27, 26, 24, 18, 21, 26, 19, 15, 28, 25, 26, 17, 23
a) use exponential smoothing with a smoothing constant of .4 to forecast the number of deliveries.
b) repeat using a smoothing constant of .5
c) compare the forecasts using MSE
