# Regression Model

Lenny's, a national restaurant chain, conducted a study of the factors affecting demand (sales). The following variables were defined and measured for a random sample of 30 of its restaurants.

Y = Annual restaurant sales ($000)

X1 = Disposable personal income per capita of residents within 5 miles radius

X2 = License to sell beer / wine (0= Yes, 1 = No)

X3 - Location (Within Â½ mile of interstate highway (0 = No, 1 = Yes)

X4 = Population (within 5 miles radius)

X5 - Number of competing restaurants within 2 miles radius

The data were entered into a computerized regression program and the following results were obtained:

Multiple R .889

R-Square .79

Standard Error of Estimate .40

F-Stat 18.17

Variable Constant Standard Error T-Values

Constant .363 .196 1.852

X1 .00275 .00104 2.644

X2 76.65 93.70 .818

X3 164.3 235.4 .698

X4 .00331 .00126 2.627

X5 46.2 12.1 3.818

Question

A. Write the regression equation for predicting restaurant sales.

B. Give the interpretation of each of the estimated regression coefficients

C. Which of the independent variables (if any) are statistically significant at the .05 significance level in "explaining" restaurant sales? Why?

D. What proportion of the variation in restaurant sales is "explained" by the regression equation?

E. Perform an F-Test (at .05 significance level) of the overall explanatory power of the regression model.
