The variation attributable to factors other than the relationship between the independent variables and the explained variable in a regression analysis is represented by:
a. regression sum of squares.
b. error sum of squares.
c. total sum of squares.
d. regression mean squares.
1. Describe what a line is that satisfies the least-squares property-what is it and what is the function? (Please share your own way of understanding it).
2. This week we looked at regression analysis. What is the difference between a simple regression analysis and multiple regression? Please give examples.
The application of the least-squares procedure to a multiple linear regression equation requires that:
a no exact linear relationships can exist among any of the independent variables
b the number of observations (n) must exceed the number of b parameters to be estimated (m)
c the number of observations (n) mus

A company that manufactures computer chips wants to use a multiple regression model to study the effect that the variables
x1 = daily production volume
x2 = daily amount of time involved in production
y = total daily production cost
If a regression model is es
Let F be a finite field. Show that every element of F is the sum of two squares.
(hint: given , show that and each have more than elements.
(See attached file for full problem description with proper symbols)
The presence of autocorrelation leads to all of the following undesirable consequences in the regression results except:
a the least-squares estimates of the regression coefficients will be biased
b the t-statistics may yield incorrect conclusions concerning the significance of the individual independent variables
I understand how to apply leastsquares regression to produce an estimated regression equation when a single variable is involved.
How is that applied for a MULTIPLE regression analysis? Is there a simultaneous solution involving all variables at once, or is a separate calculation performed for each variable independently?
