What is the forecast for period 16? Compute the initial trend estimate (T) for Period 5 as follows: (Period 4 data - Period 1 data)/3. Then compute the initial trend- adjusted forecast (TAF) for Period 5 as follows: Period 4 data + Initial trend estimate for Period 5. Then compute all remaining values including the St value for Period 5) using the textbook formulas or Excel template. (Round the "Trend"values (Tt) to 3 decimal places and all other intermediate forecast values (TAFt and St) to 2 decimal places. Round your final answer to 2 decimal places.) Forecast for period 16
