Monthly data for the past two years were entered into the program. The regression results indicated the following relation:  Sales dollars  $169,000  ($200  Advertising expenditures) Correlation coefficient  .864   these results seemed to imply that advertising was reducing sales. The manager was about to  conclude that statistical methods were so much nonsense when you walked into the room.
