Regression Analysis of computer Software

A computer software developer would like to use the number of downloads (in thousands) for the trial version of his new shareware to predict the amount of revenue (in thousands of dollars) he can make on the full version of the new shareware. Following is the not complete output from a simple linear regression along with the residual plot and normal probability plot obtained from a data set of 30 different sharewares that he has developed:

1) Referring to Table 13-11, what is the standard deviation around the regression line?
2) Referring to Table 13-11, conduct t-test whether there is a linear relationship between revenue and the number of downloads? Use p-value and alpha =.05
3) Referring to Table 13-11, what are, respectively, the lower and upper limits of the 95% confidence interval estimate for population slope?

Solution Preview

1. standard deviation around the regression line(standard error of the estimate): sqrt(1978.1582)=44.47649042

2. Ho: r=0
Ha: r is not equal to 0.
this is a two tailed t test.
