Determine each of the following.
A, System utilization
B, Average number in line

Second question: The monthly ambulatory visits occurred in an outpatient clinic.
A, predict visits for January, using the naïve forecast method

C, predict visits for January, using a four-period moving average
Explain which of the three results you have the most confidence in projecting accurately and why that is.
