places.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The forecasted demand for Week 20 is and for Week 21 is .

 

 

The manager intends to install new equipment when the volume

 

exceeds 880 loadings per week. Assuming the current trend

 

continues, in which week (at the earliest) should the loading

 

volume reach that level?

 

(Use the rounded answers, as required,

 

from any previous part of this problem. Do not round any other

 

intermediate calculations. Round your final answer to 2 decimal
