General Mills Employees Satisfaction regression

See attached document.

#1 A sample of General Mills employees was studied to determine their degree of satisfaction
with their present life. A special index, called the index of satisfaction, was used to measure
satisfaction. Six factors were studied, namely, age at the time of first marriage (X1),
annual income (X2), number of children living (X3). Value of all assets (X4)
status of health in the form of an index (X5), and the average number of social activities per week-
such as bowling and dancing (X6). Suppose the multiple regression equation is:

Y' = 16.24 + 0.017 X11 + 0.0028X2 + 42X3 + 0.0012X4 + 0.19X5 + 26.8X6

a. What is the estimated index of satisfaction for a person who first married at 18, has an annual income of $26,500
has three children living, has assets of $156,000, has an index of health status of 141 and has 2.5 social activities a week
on average?
b. Which would add more satisfaction, an additional income of $10,000 a year or two more social activities a week?

the number of rounds of golf played per weekday at the five courses. He gathered the following sample information.

Day Rounds

Friday 120

a. At the .05 significance level, is there a difference in the number of rounds played by day of the week?

#3 At www.payscale.com, the median salary for a chiropractor in Kansas is $82,400 per year.

b. State the decision rule. Use the .05 significance level.
c. Do the necessary computations and interpret the results.
