PART I. HYPOTHESIS TESTING PROBLEM 1 A certain brand of fluorescent light tube was advertised as having an effective life span before burning out of 4000 hours. A random sample of 84 bulbs was burned out with a mean illumination life span of 1870 hours and with a sample standard deviation of 90 hours. Construct a 95 confide

This is a problem #13, chapter 9 - Regression Analysis, from the textbook by Cliff Ragsdale, "Spreadsheet Modeling and Decision Analysis". This problem requires the use of Excel and the add-in, called Solver. The course is Excel-based and Solver is the optimization application used for all problems. Scatter plot of the data nee

Hypothesis tests for the correlation coefficient and the slope of the least-squares regression line Newburg Park, Florida is a popular, beach resort town. Property values are fairly high there and, as such, are rather well studied. One topic of study has been the relationship between housing prices and distance from the beach.

An electric utility wishes to examine the relationship between temperature and electricity use in its service region during the summer months. The bivariate data below give the maximum temperature (denoted by , in degrees Fahrenheit) and the electricity use (denoted by , in thousands of kilowatt hours) for a random sample of f

I understand how to apply least squares 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?
