The miles driven during the past 5 years are as follows: Year Mileage 2 3,000 4,0503,500 3850 3,800 a) Using a 2-year moving average, the forecast for year 6-3825 miles (round your response to the nearest whole number). b) If a 2-year moving average is used to make the forecast, the MAD based on this 75.0 miles (round your response to one decimal place). (Hint: You will have only 3 years of matched data.) c) The forecast for year 6 using a weighted 2-year moving average with weights of 0.35 and 0.65 (the weight of 0.65 is for the most recent period-3818 miles (round your response to the nearest whole number) The MAD for the forecast developed using a weighted 2-year moving average with weights of 0.35 and 0.65137.5 miles (round your response to one decimal place). (Hint: You will have only 3 years of matched data.) d) Using exponential smoothing with α = 0.40 and the forecast for year 1 being 3,000, the forecast for year 6- number) miles round your response to the nearest whole
