Perform the following regressions:

Independent Variable Dependent Variable
a) x1 y1
b) x1 y2
c) x1 y3
d) x2 y4

In each case, plot a scatter diagram of the independent against
dependent variable. What, if anything, could you do to obtain
better regression results in each of the four regressions?

Q.5.

(From Bodily, Carraway, Frey, and Pfeifer, Quantitative Business Analysis Casebook, Richard D. Irwin, 1996.) In a market-segmentation study, data on net income (I) in thousands, family size (F), and expenditures on consumer durable goods (C) were collected from 20 randomly-selected households:

The company sponsoring the study was interested in isolating the effects of income and family size on the dollar amounts spent for consumer durable goods. Can you help them?

Column B A weighted average of final grades in ten first-year
courses. Each course was graded on a 15-point scale, with
possible values from 54 through 96 in steps of 3.

Column C There were eight sections, coded 1 through 8.

Column D Age in years as of the day of matriculation.

Column E Four-year average of college grades, converted, if necessary,
to a four-point scale.

Column F Total score on the admissions test administered by
Educational Testing Service. This test is scored so
that the average score among all those to whom it
was administered in a given year will be about 500,
with a standard deviation of about 100. Scores can
range from 200 to 800.

Column G Quantitative score on the admissions test, scored to have
an average of about 28, a standard deviation of about
8, and a range from 0 to 52.

Column H Verbal score on the admissions test, scored the same
way as the quantitative score.
