    Biostatistics Problem to Reject or Accept Hypothesis

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    I have attached a long regression problem that I completed most of. I'd like you to tell me what I did wrong including incorrect calculations. Comments and hints would be also be greatly appreciated as I am just learning this. I know this is a long problem so Im offering 12 credits. Thanks.

    I have attached the problem as it was given to me (without my work) first. Then I attached my completed copy.
