3. A regression equation uses three independent variables to predict Y. The coefficient of determination for regressing X_1 on variables X_2 and X_3 is .95. The coefficient of determination for regressing X_2 on variables X_1 and X_3 is .85.
a. What is the VIF for X_1?
b. What is the VIF for X_2?
c. Would you say multicollinearity may present a problem for this regression equation?

4. Data are collected for the variables Y, X_1, and X_2. A computer printout of the correlation matrix is:

a. Which independent variable, X_1 or X_2, would be selected first in a forward regression procedure?
b. Which independent variable, X_1 or X_2, would be a better predictor of Y? Why?
