Problem 7.22:
This can be explained by multicollinearity. For example, when you do a t-test for single 1 and 2 and get
the result that an estimate is statistically signicant, but when you do an F test for simultaneous inferenc

Problem 2.1:
a) Since the value zero does not fall within the condence interval for the slope, this suggests that there is
a linear relationship between Y and X. The implied level of signicance is = 1 0.95 = 0.05
b) Since

Problem 9.17:
a) In step 1, we add the variable X1 since it has the highest F value of 71.481.
In step 2, we add the variable X3 since it has the highest F value of 7.580.
In step 3, we see if we need to remove either X1 or X3
