Regression analysis for McDonald's employees data.

Choose the dependent variable (the response variable to be "explained") and the independent variable (the predictor or explanatory variable) as you judge appropriate. Use a spreadsheet or a statistical package (e.g., MegaStat or MINITAB) to obtain the bivariate regression and required graphs. Write your answers to exercises in a concise report, labeling your answers to each question. Insert tables and graphs in your report as appropriate

12.48 In the following regression, X = weekly pay, Y = income tax withheld, and n = 35 McDonald's employees. (a) Write the fitted regression equation. (b) State the degrees of freedom for a two-tailed test for zero slope, and use Appendix D to find the critical value at α = .05. (c) What is your conclusion about the slope? (d) Interpret the 95 percent confidence limits for the slope. (e) Verify that F = t2 for the slope. (f) In your own words, describe the fit of this regression.
