The sales at Sunflower, an important garment store for ladies, have increased d

last 12 months, where the store has opened new locations. Until now, Sun
managers selected the locations of the stores based on subjective information such
that can be affordable or the simple perception that the location seemed to be the
for a garment store. YOU, as the new Planning Director, need to develop a new ap
select new locations, so that in the end, Sunflowers will be able to make welldecisions to open new stores. This new plan must permit you predict the annual
all potential stores you might be considering. YOU think the size of the store cont
a very important degree to the success and want to consider this relation in the
making process.

Determine whether or not as the Dimension of the stores increase, the


sales increase as well.

Variance
Variance is a measure of the variability or spread in a set of
data. Mathematically, it is the average squared deviation from
the mean score. We use the following formula to compute
variance.

where
N is the number of scores in a set of scores
X is the mean of the N scores.
Xi is the ith raw score in the set of scores
xi is the ith deviation score in the set of scores
Var(X) is the variance of all the scores in the set

set of
n from
ompute

Covariance
Covariance is a measure of the extent to which
corresponding elements from two sets of ordered data move
in the same direction. We use the following formula to
compute covariance.

where
N is the number of scores in each set of data
X is the mean of the N scores in the first data set
Xi is the ithe raw score in the first set of scores
xi is the ith deviation score in the first set of scores
Y is the mean of the N scores in the second data set
Yi is the ithe raw score in the second set of scores
yi is the ith deviation score in the second set of scores
Cov(X, Y) is the covariance of corresponding scores in the
two sets of data
