Part A: Multiple Choice (1–11)

Using the “eyeball” method, the regression line y ̂ = 2+2x has been fitted to the data points (x = 2, y = 1), (x = 3, y = 8), and (x = 4, y = 7). The sum of the squared residuals will be

7b. 19 c. 34d. 8

A computer statistical package has included the following quantities in its output: SST = 50, SSR = 35, and SSE = 15. How much of the variation in y is explained by the regression equation?

49% b. 70%c. 35%d. 15%

In testing the significance of b_1, the null hypothesis is generally that

β = b_1 b. β ≠ 0c. β = 0d. β = r

Testing whether the slope of the population regression line could be zero is equivalent to testing whether the population _____________ could be zero.

standard error of estimatec. y-intercept

prediction intervald. coefficient of correlation

A multiple regression equation includes 4 independent variables, and the coefficient of multiple determination is 0.64. How much of the variation in y is explained by the regression equation?

80%b. 16%c. 32%d. 64%

A multiple regression analysis results in the following values for the sum-of-squares terms: SST = 50.0, SSR = 35.0, and SSE = 15.0. The coefficient of multiple determination will be

R^2= 0.35b. R^2= 0.30c. R^2= 0.70 d. R^2= 0.50

In testing the overall significance of a multiple regression equation in which there are three independent variables, the null hypothesis is

H_(0 ): β_1= β_2= β_3=0

H_(0 ): β_1≠ β_2 and β_2 ≠β_3

H_(0 ): β_1= β_2=β_3=1

H_(0 ): β_1= β_2=β_3=α

In a multiple regression analysis involving 25 data points and 4 independent variables, the sum-of-squares terms are calculated as SSR = 120, SSE = 80, and SST = 200. In testing the overall significance of the regression equation, the calculated value of the test statistic will be

F = 1.5c. F = 5.5

F = 2.5d. F = 7.5

For a set of 15 data points, a computer statistical package has found the multiple regression equation to be y ̂ = -23 + 20x_1+ 5x_2 + 25x_3 and has listed the t-ratio for testing the significance of each partial regression coefficient. Using the 0.05 level in testing whether b_1= 20 differs significantly from zero, the critical t values will be

t = -1.960 and t= +1.960

t = -2.132 and t = +2.132

t = -2.201 and t = +2.201

t = -1.796 and t = +1.796

Computer analyses typically provide a p-Value for each partial regression coefficient. In the case of b_1, this is the probability that

β_1 = 0

b_1 = β_1

the absolute value of b_1could be this large if β_1= 0

the absolute value of b_1could be this large if β_1≥ 1

In the multiple regression equation, y ̂ = 20,000 + 0.05x_1+ 4500x_2 , y ̂ is the estimated household income, x_1 is the amount of life insurance held by the head of the household, and x_2 is a dummy variable (x_2 = 1 if the family owns mutual funds, 0 if it doesn’t). The interpretation of b_2 = 4500 is that

owing mutual funds increases the estimated income by $4500

the average value of a mutual funds portfolio is $4500

45% of the persons in the sample own mutual funds

the sample size must have been at least n = 4500

Part B: True or False (12-20)

_______ 12. The usual objective of regression analysis is to predict estimate the value of one variable when the value of another variable is known.

_______ 13. Correlation analysis is concerned with measuring the strength of the relationship between two variables.

_______ 14. In the least squares model, the explained sum of squares is always smaller than the regression sum of squares.

_______ 15. The sample correlation coefficient and the sample slope will always have the same sign.

_______ 16. An important relationship in regression analysis is(Y_i-Y ̅ )=(Y ̂-Y ̅ )+(Y_i-Y ̂).

_______ 17. If in a regression analysis the explained sum of squares is 75 and the unexplained sum of square is 25, r2 = 0.33.

_______ 18. When small values of Y tend to be paired with small values of X, the relationship between X and Y is said to be inverse.

_______ 19. The probability that the test statistic will fall in the critical region, given that H0 is true, represents the probability of making a type II error.

_______ 20. When we reject a true null hypothesis, we commit a Type I error.
