STEP ONE: Calculate the single exponential smoothing forecast for these data using a alpha of .30, and an initial forecast of (F1) of 31. 
STEP TWO: Calculate the exponential smoothing with trend forecast for these data using a alpha of .30 a delta of .30, and an initial trend forecast (T1) of 1, and an initial exponentially smoothed forecast (F1) of 30. 
STEP THREE: Calculate the mean absolute deviation (MAD) for each forecast. 
STEP FOUR: Which is best and explain why?
We are allowed to use excel, but it must be done by hand and not using excel functions. Please indicate Step 1, 2, 3, 4 and indicate (highlight) the final answer for each.
