Topic: Confidence & prediction intervals 11366 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 9. An application of the multiple regression model generated the following results involving
the F test of the overall regression model: p  value = .0012, R2 = .67 and s = .076. Thus, the
null hypothesis, which states that none of the independent variables are significantly related to
the dependent variable, should be rejected at the .05 level of significance.
