I have created a program that displays past product orders.
Over sixty weeks one product has been selected 14 times, so I might not have the stock on hand because it is a slow item,
but I know I will sell more in the future.

This is one product records
3 items was sold in the first 10 weeks
4 items was sold in the second 10 weeks
3 items was sold in the third 10 weeks
2 items was sold in the fourth 10 weeks
1 item was sold in the fifth 10 weeks
1 item was sold in the sixth 10 weeks

Can I predict what we will need in the next 10 weeks

Without a clear trend, you can use the average as a prediction.

I have applied a moving average but the outcome was less than 50%
