categories: single, married, separated, divorced, widowed, what will be the effect on the
model?
A. One more independent variable will be included.
B. Two more independent variables will be included.
C. Three more independent variables will be included.
D. Four more independent variables will be included.
E. Five more independent variables will be included. 11305 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 27. An investigator hired by a client suing for sex discrimination has developed a multiple
regression model for employee salaries for the company in question. In this multiple
regression model, the salaries are in thousands of dollars. For example, a data entry of 35 for
the dependent variable indicates a salary of $35,000. The indicator (dummy) variable for
gender is coded as X1 = 0 if male and X1 = 1 if female. The computer output of this multiple
regression model shows that the coefficient for this variable (X1) is  4.2. The t test showed
that X1 was significant at α = 0.1. This result implies that for male and female workers of the
company,
A. On the average, females earn $4200 less.
B. On the average, males earn $4200 less.
C. On the average, salaries do not differ.
D. On the average, males have 4.2 more years of experience.
E. On the average, females have 4.2 more years of experience. 28. Consider the following partial computer output for a multiple regression model. How many observations were taken?
A. 3
B. 16
C. 19
D. 20
E. 13 11306 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 29. Consider the following partial computer output for a multiple regression model. What is R2?
A. 31.308%
B. 76.95%
C. 87.72%
D. 72.63%
E. 23.1% 30. Consider the following partial computer output for a multiple regression model. What is the adjusted R2?
A. 31.308%
B. 76.95%
C. 87.72%
D. 72.63%
E. 23.1% 11307 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 31. The graph of the prediction equation obtained from the model
is a(n)
A. Line
B. Plane
C. Parabola
D. Exponential curve 32. In multiple regression analysis, the mean square regression divided by mean square error
yields the:
A. Standard error
B. F statistic
C. R2
D. Adjusted R2 or
E. t statistic 33. In multiple regression analysis, the explained sum of squares divided by the total sum of
squares yields the:
A. Standard error

C. R2
D. Adjusted R2 or
E. t statistic 34. In multiple regression analysis, which one of the following is the appropriate notation for
error (residual)?
