See attached problem 13.30 using a stepwise regression to create regression models to predict birthrates.

13.30 A researcher used stepwise regression to create regression models to predict BirthRate (births per 1,000) using five predictors: LifeExp (life expectancy in years), InfMort (infant mortality rate), Density (population density per square kilometer), GDPCap (Gross Domestic Product per capita), and Literate (literacy percent). Interpret these results. BirthRates2

Regression Analysis : Interpretation of slope

12.8 (a) Interpret the slope of the fitted regression Sales = 842 − 37.5 Price. (b) If Price = 20, what is the prediction for Sales? (c) Would the intercept be meaningful if this regression represents DVD sales at Blockbuster?

12.9 (a) Interpret the slope of the fitted regression Home Price = 125,000 + 150 Square Feet. (b) What is the prediction for Home Price if Square Feet = 2,000? (c) Would the intercept be meaningful if this regression applies to home sales in a certain subdivision?
