Let Y 1 and Y 2 denote pressure drops for flow rates of 10 and 11, respectively. Then , 925 . 11 = ⋅ Y μ so Y 1 ‐ Y 2 has expected value .830 ‐ .925 = ‐ .095, and s.d.

So 97.53% of the observed variation in runoff volume can be attributed to the simple linear regression relationship between runoff and rainfall. 3. Let 1 β denote the true average change in runoff for each 1 m 3 increase in rainfall. To test the hypotheses : 1 = β o H vs. : 1 ≠ β a H , the calculated t statistic is 64 . 22 03652 . 82697 . ˆ 1 ˆ 1 = = = β β s t which (from the printout) has an associated p ‐ value of P = 0.000. Therefore, since the p ‐ value is so small, H o is rejected and we conclude that there is a useful linear relationship between runoff and rainfall. A confidence interval for 1 β is based on n – 2 = 15 – 2 = 13 degrees of freedom. , so the interval estimate is 160 . 2 13 , 025 ....
