Unformatted text preview: STAT5044: Regression and ANOVA Homework #2 Problem# 1. A substance used in biological and medical research is shipped by airfreight to users in cartons of 1,000 ampules. The data, involving 10 shipments, were collected on the number of times the carton was transferred from one aircraft to another over the shipment route (X) and the number of ampules found to be found to be broken upon arrival (Y). (a) Obtain the estimated function. Plot the estimated regression function and the data. Does a linear regression function appear to give a good fit here? (b) Obtain a point estimate of the expected number of broken ampules when X = 1 transfer is made (c) Estimate the increase in the expected number of ampules broken when there are 2 transfers as compared to 1 transfer. (d) Verify that your fitted regression line goes through the point ( X, Y ). Problem# 2. Refer to Airfreight breakage (Problem 1)....
