In a simple linear regression problem, the following sum of squares are produced: ( y i- y ) 2 = 200 , ( y i- y 8 i ) 2 = 50 , and ( y 8 i- y ) 2 = 150 . The percentage of the variation in y that is explained by the variation in x is: a. 25% b. 75% c. 33% d. 50% ANS: B PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 16.3-16.4 89. In simple linear regression, most often we perform a two-tail test of the population slope 1 to determine whether there is sufficient evidence to infer that a linear relationship exists. The null hypothesis is stated as: a. H : 1 = 0 b. H : 1 = b 1 c. H : 1 d. None of these choices. ANS: A PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 16.3-16.4 90. Testing whether the slope of the population regression line could be zero is equivalent to testing whether the: a. sample coefficient of correlation could be zero b. standard error of estimate could be zero c. population coefficient of correlation could be zero d. sum of squares for error could be zero ANS: C PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 16.3-16.4 91. Given that s x 2 = 500, s y 2 = 750,cov( x , y ) = 100, and n = 6, the standard error of estimate is: a. 3,749.00 b. 937.25 c. 30.61 d. None of these choices. ANS: C PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 16.3-16.4 2 92. The symbol for the population coefficient of correlation is: a. r b. c. r 2 d. 2 ANS: B PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 16.3-16.4 93. Given that the sum of squares for error is 60 and the sum of squares for regression is 140, then the coefficient of determination is: a. 0.429 b. 0.300 c. 0.700 d. None of these choices. ANS: C PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 16.3-16.4 94. A regression line using 25 observations produced SSR = 118.68 and SSE = 56.32. The standard error of estimate was: a. 2.11 b. 1.56 c. 2.44 d. None of these choices. ANS: B PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 16.3-16.4 95. The symbol for the sample coefficient of correlation is: a. r b. c. r 2 d. 2 ANS: A PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 16.3-16.4 96. Given the least squares regression line y 8 = - 2.48 + 1.63 x , and a coefficient of determination of 0.81, the coefficient of correlation is: a.- 0.66 b. 0.81 c.- 0.90 d. 0.90 ANS: D PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 16.3-16.4 97. Given the least squares regression line y 8 = 2.48- 1.63 x , and a coefficient of determination of 0.81, the coefficient of correlation is: a.- 0.66 b. 0.81 c.- 0.90 d. 0.90 ANS: C PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 16.3-16.4 3 98. If the coefficient of determination is 0.975, then which of the following is true regarding the slope of the regression line? a. All we can tell is that it must be positive. b. It must be 0.975. c. It must be 0.987. d. Cannot tell the sign or the value. ANS: D PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 16.3-16.4 99. In regression analysis, if the coefficient of determination is 1.0, then: a. the sum of squares for error must be 1.0 b. the sum of squares for regression must be 1.0 c. the sum of squares for error must be 0.0 d. the sum of squares for regression must be 0.0 ANS: C PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 16.3-16.4 SECTION 16....
