1. S(4,8) =  0.133 *4*64 = 34, when there are 4 businesses on the same floor of the building as the machine and there are 8 different kinds of sodas in the machine, the sale of the soda machine is 34.

2. Sv(4,8 ) = ds/dv (4,8) = 0.266 b*v = 0.266*4*8 =8.5, when there are 4 businesses on the same floor of the building as the machine and there are 8 different kinds of sodas in the machine, if the number of sodas increases by 1, the sales in sodas increases by 8.5.
