Solution to the SAMPLE MIDTERM Statistics 108 1. a) ANOVA table Source df SS MS Regression 1 859.1 859.1 Error n-2=10 573.9 57.39 Total n-1=11 1433.0 b) Test H 0 : β 1 = 0 against H 1 : β 1 6 = 0 at level α = 0 . 05 F * = MSR/MSE = 859 . 1 / 57 . 39 = 14 . 970 . df=(1 , 10). F ( . 95; 1 , 10) = 4 . 96 . Since F * > F ( . 95; 1 , 10) we reject H 0 . p-value=area to the right of 14 . 970 under the F curve with df=(1,10). From the F-table, F ( . 995; 1 , 10) = 12 . 8 and F ( . 999; 1 , 10) = 21 . 0 . So the p-value is between .001 and .005. c) R 2 = SSR/SSTO = . 5995 About 60% of the variability in Physics score ( Y ) can be explained by its regression on Mathematics score ( X ). 2. a) b 1 = ( X i - ¯ X )( Y i - ¯ Y ) / ( X i - ¯ X ) 2 = 876 / 97 = 9 . 03093 b 0 = ¯ Y - b 1 ¯ X = 160 - (9 . 03093)(4 . 6) = 118 . 45772 Fitted regression line ˆ Y = 118 . 4577 + 9 . 0309 X Estimated cancer mortality at X = 3 . 7 is ˆ Y = 118 . 4577 + (9 . 0309)(3 . 7) = 151 . 8720 . b)
