Morning -0.9186 3.0655 -0.2997 0.7669

Use the output above to answer parts (h) through (l).

h) Returning to the p-value for the indicator variable Morning, what conclusion can you draw?

From the above table, we know that the p-value for the indicator variable Morning is 0.7669 and the corresponding t-value=-0.2997. So, we can roughly know that the indicator variable Morning as a predictor variable has a small impact on the number of defects.

i) Using non-technical language, state and interpret the standard error of the estimate.

From the above table, we know that the standard error of the estimate is 7.2326. Also, we know the regression equation is

Number of defects Y=1.0312+ 17.4189* TemperatureX1 -1.5741* DensityX2

+0.1184 *RateX3-0.9186*MorningX4

So, we can use this equation to predict the number of defects Y*. If we use 95% confidence level, then the real value for the number of defects can be away from Y* by , ie., (Y*-1.96*7.2326, Y*+1.96*7.2326)

j) Is Rate significant? What does Rate's significance or lack thereof imply about ...

#### Solution Summary

The results of multiple regression for Defect are determined. An alternative hypothesis is analyzed.
