The assumption of homoskedasticity is not realistic for this data set because by looking at the graph below, you could see that the variance is not constant and the spread seems to vary with the amount of education.

Education 0 5 10 15 20 25 0 5 10 15 20 years of education average hourly earnings Fitted values c. wage = b0 + b1 educ wage = -0.9049 + 0.5413(16)= $.7.76 The estimated wage in 1976 when educ=16 is $7.7569 or $7.76. $7.76 x 2.82= In 1997, the estimated wage is $21.8744 or $21.87. d. One more year of education increases the hourly wage by 0.541359 (or $0.54). Four years of education increase the predicted hourly wage by about $2.1654 (or $2.16)
