Consider the normal simple linear regression model, i.e. Y i = a + b x i + i , i = 1 , . . ., n, where 1 , . . . , n iid N (0 , 2 ) with 2 > , a, b R all unknown, and assume that not all of the known constants x i are equal. Construct a 95%-confidence interval for b . Proceed as follows: Find a pivot quantity based on hatwide b and hatwide 2 (the MLEs of b and 2 ). Justify the independence of hatwide b and hatwide 2 in the given regression model. Then use this to construct the confidence interval. (HINT: Use similar arguments as used in class for constructing confidence intervals for the regression function a + bx . NOTICE: The degrees of freedom involved here are different as compared to the material presented in class.) 2. Consider the normal simple linear regression model without intercept , i.e....
