In this case the residuals look fairly random and distributed in a horizontal band along the fitted values. There is no obvious pattern, so we can say they have a constant variance. d) The Ryan-Joiner statistic is 0.974 and its p-value is < = 0.01, therefore the residuals are not normally distributed. Value from Table B6 for n = 100, = 0.05 is 0.987 or less The Normal Probability Plot generated by Minitab: RESI1 Percent 2 1-1-2-3 99.9 99 95 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 5 1 0.1 Mean-2.32777E-15 StDev 0.6205 N 120 RJ 0.974 P-Value <0.010 Probability Plot of RESI 1 Normal Also from the graph it can be seen that the residuals show a big departure from normality since they dont seem to form a straight line. e) H : errors have constant variance H a : errors have non-constant variance 5-2 Stat 462, Spring 2008 Homework 5 Solution key Due: March 7, 2008 Prepared by: Esra Kurum Decision rule: Reject the null hypothesis if p-value < = 0.01 Fail to reject null hypothesis if p-value > = 0.01 Conclusion: Fail to reject the null hypothesis since p-value (0.072)> Conclusion: Fail to reject the null hypothesis since p-value (0....
