Unformatted text preview: UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO Faculty of Arts and Science JUNE EXAMINATION 2004 STA 302 H1F / STA 1001 H1F Duration - 3 hours Aids Allowed: Calculator NAME: STUDENT NUMBER: There are 17 pages including this page. The last page is a table of formulae that may be useful. Tables of the t distribution can be found on page 15 and tables of the F distribution can be found on page 16. Total marks: 75 1abcde 1fg 2ab 2cd 3 4 5a 5b 5cd 5ef 6ab 6cde 1 Continued 1. Olympic gold medal performances in track and field improve over time. A regression was run with dependent variable longjump , the winning distance in the long jump (in inches), and independent variable year , the year the Olympics was held after 1900 (counting 1900 as year 0). Data from the Olympics held from 1900 through 1984 were used (some Olympics were missed during the World Wars). Here are the data: year 4 8 12 20 24 28 32 36 48 longjump 282.9 289.0 294.5 299.3 281.5 293.1 304.8 300.8 317.3 308.0 year 52 56 60 64 68 72 76 80 84 longjump 298.0 308.3 319.8 317.8 350.5 324.5 328.5 336.3 336.3 Some output from SAS is given below.

(b) (1 mark) Estimate the variance in winning long jump distance that is not ex- plained by the year the Olympics were held. (c) (1 mark) Estimate the percent of total variability in winning long jump distance that is explained by the year the Olympics were held....
