Unformatted text preview: 12.50 In the following regression, X = total assets ($ billions), Y = total revenue ($ billions), and n = 64 large banks. (a) Write the fitted regression equation. (b) State the degrees of freedom for a twotailed test for zero slope, and use Appendix D to find the critical value at α = .05. (c) What is your conclusion about the slope? (d) Interpret the 95 percent confidence limits for the slope. (e) Verify that F = t2 for the slope. (f) In your own words, describe the fit of this regression. (a) y = 0.0452x + 6.5763 (b) Degrees of freedom = 64 – 1 = 63, critical value of t corresponding to 63 degrees of freedom at α = 0.05 (twotailed) is 1.9983. (c) Since the t value for the slope (8.183) is greater than the critical value (1.9983), the null hypothesis is rejected. Therefore, the slope is different from zero. (d) We are 95% confident that the true population slope lies between 0.0342 and 0.0563. (e) t^2 = 8.183^2 = 66.97 = F=t^2...
