Does this imply that the value given by the first procedure was approximately the same as the value given by the second procedure for each of the samples analyzed? Explain why or why not. 2. The 90% confidence interval for a regression coefficient is (2 . 1 , 8 . 6). What can you say, if anything, about the pvalue of the hypothesis test that this coefficient is zero? 3. Assume a oneway ANOVA with the same number of observations for each treatment. Suppose the degrees of freedom for treatments is 4, and the degrees of freedom for error is 20. Find (i) the number of treatments, and (ii) the number of observations for each treatment. 4. When running a quadratic regression, you “center” the explanatory variable by subtracting its mean ¯ X = 1. The estimated coefficients for the model in this form are b = 2, b 1 = 3, b 2 = 4, and...
