    Problem 1: Thirty Data Points
    1. Thirty data points on Y and X are employed to estimate the parameters in the linear relation Y = a + bX. The computer output from the regression analysis is

    DEPENDENT VARIABLE: Y R-SQUARE F-RATIO P-VALUE ON F
    OBSERVATIONS: 30 0.3301 13.79 0.0009
    VARIABLE PARAMETER STANDARD T-RATIO P-VALUE
    ESTIMATE ERROR

    INTERCEPT 93.54 46.210 2.02 0.0526
    X -3.25 0.875 -3.71 0.0009

    a. The equation of the sample regression line is Yˆ = _________________.
    b. There are ______ degrees of freedom for the t-test. At the 1% level of significance, the critical t-value for the test is ______________.
    c. At the 1% level of significance, aˆ __________ (is, is not) significant, and bˆ ________ (is, is not) significant.
    d. At the 2% level of significance, the critical t-value for a t-test is ___________. At the 2% level of significance, ˆ a ____________ (is, is not) significant, and bˆ ____________ (is, is not) significant.
    e. The p-value for bˆ indicates that the exact level of significance is ______ percent, which is the probability of _________________________________
    f. At the 1% level of significance, the critical value of the F-statistic is __________. The model as a whole ______________(is, is not) significant at the 1% level.
    g. If X equals 500, the fitted (or predicted) value of Y is __________________.
    h. The percentage of the total variation in Y not explained by the regression is ______________ percent.
    i. Explain why it is necessary to assess the statistical significance of the parameter estimates.
