The rate of spread R (in m/s ) of a wildﬁre is related to wind speed W (in km/h ). Suppose data have been collected on 5 ﬁres: R W 30 35 32 40 18 20 35 50 12 15 (a) Write out a linear regression model relating rate of spread to wind speed, including an error term. (Do not estimate the parameters) (b) What assumptions are usually made about the error term? (c) What is the expected value of the rate of spread when wind speed is

Unformatted text preview: x ? (d) What is the variance of the rate of spread when wind speed is x ? (e) Suppose W is a random variable with mean μ and variance σ 2 W . What is the (un-conditional) variance of the rate of spread? Also, ﬁnd the unconditional expected rate of spread. (f) How would you change the model if rate of spread is linearly related to the square root of wind speed? 2. Write out a linear regression model which could be used to predict the prime interest rate P from the core inﬂation rate C ....
