d.) Establish a 95% confidence interval for β2. Would you reject the hypothesis that the true slope coefficient is 3.0?

e.) Obtain the mean and individual forecast value of Pay if per pupil spending is $5000. Also establish 95% confidence intervals for the true mean and individual values of Pay for the given spending figure.

f.) How would you test the assumption of the normality of the error term? Show the test(s) you use.
