Predicting runs scored in baseball.

Statistician Scott Berry built a multiple regression model for predicting total number of runs scored by a Major League Baseball team during a season. Using data on all teams over a 9-year period (a sample of n = 234), the results in the attached table were obtained (see attached table).

a) Write the least squares prediction equation for y = total number of runs scored by a team in a season.
b) Interpret, practically, the ? estimates in the model.
c) Conduct a test of Ho: ?7 = 0 against Ha: ?7 < 0 at ? = 0.05. Interpret the results.
d) Form a 95% confidence interval for ?5. Interpret the results.
