Stat 501 Homework 1 ANSWERS Fall 07
1.
a
. The slope is −0.269. For each onehour increase in studying average (or, predicted) amount of sleep
decreases by 0.269 hours.
b.
Intercept = 7.56 hours. It does have useful meaning for this problem.
It’s the average hours of sleep for
people who studied 0 hours.
c.
The estimated value of average hours of sleep the previous day is y
ˆ
= 7.022, calculated by substituting
2 hours into the regression equation.
d.
The value of the residual for that person is –1.022, calculated by finding the difference between the
observed value of 6 hours and the predicted value found in part c.
