4        10,211    102

5        19,330    240

6        35,789    190

7        12,540    108

8        43,150    234

9        27,886    140

13      36,400   270

14      25,760   175

15     31,500    256

To complete this assignment:

1. Use Excel to develop a scatter diagram of the data, including dependent and independent variables on their correct axis.
2. In a Word document, analyze the relationship between sales and number of clerk hours worked.
3. Conclude, based on the scatter diagram, what adjustments the sales manager might make to address the relationship between sales and number of clerk hours worked.
4. Submit your work in a Word document with your Excel file attached.
