5 Sales vs. Advertising ± The linear relation is usually not exact. ± A more realistic model: Where β 0 and β 1 are regression coefficients. i i 1 0 i A S ε β + + = 6 Measurement Error ± Properties of distribution ± A mean of zero ± Symmetry around zero ± An assignment of greater probability to small errors than to larger ones ± Errors are assumed to be: ± Independent ± Have same variance (
