    You wanted to develop a model to predict how long individuals will live. After consulting a number of physicians, you collected the age at death (y), the average number of hours of exercise per week (x1), the cholesterol level (x2), and the number of points that the individual's blood pressure exceeded the recommended value (x3). A random sample of 40 individuals was selected. The computer output of the multiple regression model is shown below.

    THE REGRESSION EQUATION IS
    y = 55.8 +1.79x1 - 0.021x2 - 0.016x3

    Predictor Coef StDev T
    Constant 55.8 11.8 4.729
    X1 1.79 0.44 4.068
    X2 -0.021 0.011 -1.909
    X3 -0.016 0.014 -1.143

    S = 9.47 R-Sq = 22.5%

    A. Is there enough evidence at the 10% significance level to infer that the model is useful in predicting length of life?
    B. Is there enough evidence at the 1% significance level to infer that the average number of hours of exercise per week and the age at death are linearly related?
    C. What is the coefficient of determination? What does this statistic tell you?
    D. Interpret the coefficient b1
