Unformatted text preview: the fixture, and the number of retail stores selling the fixture in a particular month, influence the light fixture sales. The manufacturer randomly selects 10 months and collects the following data: The sales are in thousands of units per month, the advertising is given in hundreds of dollars per month, and the price is the unit retail price for the particular month. Using MINITAB, the following computer output is obtained. The regression equation is Sales = 31.0 + 0.820 Advertising - 0.325 Price + 1.84 Stores S = 5.465 R - Sq = 96.7% R - Sq(adj) = 95.0% Analysis of Variance Based on the multiple regression model given above, the point estimate of the monthly light fixture sales corresponding to second sample data is 49.82 or 49,820 units. This point estimate is calculated based on the assumption that the company spends $4000 on advertising, the price of the fixture is $60 and the fixture is being sold at 3 retail stores. Additional information related to this point estimate is given below. Determine the 95% interval for β1 (beta coefficient for the advertising variable). -0.4089 to 2.0493 1-1412 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Hard Learning Objective: 5 Topic: Significance of an independent variable 1-1413 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 89.

Interpret the meaning of this interval. 1-1414 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics We are 95% confident that if average advertising expenditures increases by $1000, while the price of the product and the number of stores selling the product remains constant, then the average monthly unit sales of this fixture will decrease by at most 408 units and will increase by at most 2049 units.

Test the usefulness of variable "price" in the model using the null hypothesis H0: β2 ≤ 0, at α = 0.05, and state your conclusions. 1-1416 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics Reject H0. We have strong evidence that the independent variable "price" has a significant positive relationship with "Sales" in the regression model.

The management of a professional baseball team is in the process of determining the budget for next year. A major component of future revenue is attendance at the home games. In order to predict attendance at home games the team statistician has used a multiple regression model with dummy variables. The...
