**Research: Patents** The following data are based on information from the *Harvard Business Review* (Vol. 72, No. 1). Let *x* be the number of different research programs, and let *y* be the mean number of patents per program. As in any business, a company can spread itself too thin. For example, too many research programs might lead to a decline in overall research productivity. The following data are for a collection of pharmaceutical companies and their research programs:

x |
10 | 12 | 14 | 16 | 18 | 20 |

y |
1.8 | 1.7 | 1.5 | 1.4 | 1.0 | 0.7 |

Complete parts (a) through (e), given

(f) Suppose a pharmaceutical company has 15 different research programs. What does the least-squares equation forecast for *y* = mean number of patents per program?
