(B) What conclusions are possible using the meaning of b0 (intercept) and b1 (regression coefficient) in this problem? (That is, explain the meaning of the coefficients.)

(C) What conclusions are possible using the coefficient of determination (r-squared)? My answer is 86.64%?

(D) Calculate the coefficient of correlation. Interpret this value.

(E) Does this data provide significant evidence (a=0.05) that the companies’ profits are related to the amount of sales? Find the p-value and interpret.
