A table of values from the t distribution is on the last page (page 7). Total points: 50 Some formulae: b 1 = ( X i X )( Y i Y ) ( X i X ) 2 = X i Y i n X Y X 2 i n X 2 b = Y b 1 X Var( b 1 ) = 2 ( X i X ) 2 Var( b ) = 2 1 n + X 2 ( X i X ) 2 Cov( b , b 1 ) = 2 X ( X i X ) 2 SSTO = ( Y i Y ) 2 SSE = ( Y i Y i ) 2 SSR = b 2 1 ( X i X ) 2 = ( Y i Y ) 2 2 { Y h } = Var( Y h ) = 2 1 n + ( X h X ) 2 ( X i X ) 2 2 { pred } = Var( Y h Y h ) = 2 1 + 1 n + ( X h X ) 2 ( X i X ) 2 r = ( X i X )( Y i Y ) p ( X i X ) 2 ( Y i Y ) 2 1 2ab 2cdef 2gh 3 1 1. A simple linear regression model Y i = + 1 X i + i is fit using least squares to n data points. Assume that the GaussMarkov conditions hold and that the error terms are normally distributed with mean 0 and variance 2 . (a) (3 marks) What is the probability distribution of b 1 ? What is the probability distribu tion of 1 ? b 1 N 1 , 2 ( X i X ) 2 ! (2 marks) 1 is not random (1 mark) (b) (4 marks) Describe the method of least squares. How is it related to R 2 ? Find the slope and intercept of the line that minimizes the sum of squares of the vertical deviations of the data points from the line. (2 marks) The quantity that is being minimized as a proportion of variation in the Y s is 1 R 2 . (2 marks) (c) (3 marks) Suppose the regression model is being used to predict blood pressure as a function of weight. Explain the difference between a confidence interval for the mean response at a new X and a prediction interval at a new X in this context. (Do not discuss the details of the formulae for calculating the intervals.) For a particular weight, there is a probability distribution for the possible values of blood pressure. The confidence interval for the mean of Y at that weight gives an interval that captures the mean of this probability distribution (...
