Step 1

Step-by-step procedure to obtain the regression equation using Excel:

• In Excel sheet, enter Rate of return of the index in one column and enter rate of return of the company stock in one column.
• In Data, select Data Analysis and choose Regression.
• In Input Variable X Range, select Rate of return of the index.
• In Input Variable Y Range, select rate of return of the company stock.
• Click Ok.

Output obtained using Excel is given below:

Step 2

From the output, the regression equation is y^= –1.021+0.573x.

The mean rate of return f...
