. In simple linear regression the model that fits the data the best: A. Minimizes sum of the squared errors (SSE) B. Maximizes the sum of squares due to regression (SSR) C. Maximizes r2 D. All of the above In multiple linear regression when the slope of a variable is not statistically significant you should A. Continue to use the model as long as the model is statistically significant B. Eliminate the variable and rerun the analysis C. Use the model as long as the r2 is > 0.90 D. None of the above In simple linear regression you get b1 = -4. The p-value associated with the hypothesis test about 1 is 0.0001. What is the only interval from below that could be the 95% confidence for 1? A. (-9, 1) B. (2, 6) C. (-8, -1) D. (-6, -2) In a regression analysis you get r2 = 0.72. This means that: A. SSR < SSE B. SSR = SSE C. SSR > SSE D. Not enough info to tell A model with a statistically insignificant y-intercept should never be used. A. True B. False In a simple linear regression if the 95% confidence interval for y|x=5 is (7, 13) then the 95% prediction interval for y given x = 5 can only be: A. (6, 15) B. (8, 12) C. (6, 14) D. (5, 13) In a simple linear regression where = 12 if the 95% prediction interval for y when x = 13 is (12, 18) then the 95% prediction interval for y when x = 10 can only be: A. (10, 16) B. (13, 20) C. (12, 14) D. (10.1, 15.9)

In a simple linear regression if the F-statistic has a p-value = 0.0245 then the p-value of the t-statistic associated with 0 will be: A. < 0.0245 B. = 0.0245 C. > 0.0245 D. Not enough information to tell In a multiple regression with 3 independent variables if the F-test is rejected for =0.10 then all the slopes associated with the independent variables are statistically significantly different from 0 for = 0.10. A. True B. False In a simple linear regression if r2 > 0.1 then the model is statistically significant. A. True B. False

For questions 11 17 utilize the following data and its associated multiple regression analysis. The dependent variable is annual Sales (in thousands of dollars) for Hair So Shiny, a shampoo. The independent variables are AdvBudget (the annual advertising budget for Hair So Shiny, in thousands of dollars), BudgetRatio (the ratio of the advertising budget for Hair So Shiny to the advertising budget for Hair So Soft, the major competitive shampoo), and DispInc (the disposable income in the year in billions of dollars).

Next year the company is planning on an advertising budget of $27,500,000 which is 1.5 times the anticipated advertising budget of the competitive product. In addition the company expects disposable income to be $1675 billion. Can the company be at least 95% confident that their sales will exceed $210,000,000? Why or why not?

17.

The company thinks disposable income will increase by $1 billion next year. Keeping the advertising budgets of both products fixed can the company be at least 95% confident sales will increase by at least $40,000? Why or why not?

Questions 18 is worth 7 points 18. You have a data set with 5 observations of a dependent variable y and 2 independent variables x1 and x2. Write out both the X and the X matrix.

Questions 19 20 are worth 5 points each 19. When doing a simple linear regression analysis and performing the matrix multiplication XX, in the resulting matrix the entries in the first row second column and second row first column are the same and equal: A. n B. The sum of the xs squared C. The square of the sum of the xs D. The sum of the xs If one of the columns of the X matrix is linearly dependent on another column in the X matrix then X is not of full rank and therefore you cannot A. Multiply X and X B. Invert XX C. Find X D. None of the above
