[See attached files.]

This assignment introduces you to applications of simple and multiple regression. You will apply these models for predicting and forecasting and, determining the strength of the relationship between a variable y and a number of variables X1, ..., Xp.

Skill- Building Exercises:

? 1. For the Home Market Value data, use formulas (6.2) and (6.3) on a spreadsheet to calculate the least-squares regression coefficients.

? 2. For the Colleges and Universities data, plot scatter charts for each variable individually against the graduation rate and add linear trendlines, finding both the equation and R2 values.

? 3. Use the regression tools to find simple linear regression models for each independent variable for the Colleges and Universities data.

? 4. Use the INTERCEPT and SLOPE functions in Excel to develop regression models for each of the independent variables in the Colleges and Universities example.

Number and identify each part of the answer concerning the college and university: ie, 2, 3 or 4

Problems and Applications:

12. The Excel file Concert Sales provides data on sales dollars and the number of radio and TV and newspaper ads promoting the concerts for a group of cities. Develop simple linear regression models for predicting sales as a function of the number of each type of ad. Compare these results to a multiple linear regression model using both independent variables. Examine the residuals of the best model for regression assumptions and possible outliers.

The output is in the Excel file and below:

a) House Age

b1 = 1570.434183

b2 = 45217.76115

The regression equation is: y = 1570.4x + 45218

b) Square Feet

b1 = 35.03637258

b2 = 32673.2199

The regression equation is: y = 35.036x + 32673

? 2. For the Colleges and Universities data, plot scatter charts for each variable individually against the graduation rate and add linear trendlines, finding both the equation and R2 values.

This has been done in the Excel file. The equation of the trendline and the R^2 value for each scatterplot is displayed in the chart.

? 3. Use the regression tools to find simple linear regression models for each independent variable for the Colleges and Universities data.
