    Adjusted exponentially smoothed forcast

    1. Given the following data on hotel check-ins for a 6-month period:
    July: 45 rooms
    August: 36 rooms
    September: 52 rooms
    October: 48 rooms
    November: 56 rooms
    December: 60 rooms
    With alpha = 0.2 and beta = 0.1, what is the adjusted exponentially smoothed forecast for September?

    I searched for you question on the internet, it seems it is a problem of meteorology. I am afraid this is not the forum for that. However, if you can provide some formula used for this exponential smoothing maybe we can help.

    Meterology? The study of weather?

    Its a problem in forcasting (no not weather forcasting) time series (Or in this
    case interpolating time series).

    I'm still not clear about this question, could you provide more details about
    the problem, and/or the methods you have been taught about?
