For numbers 20-25, please refer to the following problem: An important application of regression analysis is in the estimation of cost. By collecting data on volume and cost and using the least squares method to develop an estimated regression equation relating volume and cost, one can estimate the cost associated with a particular manufacturing volume. Consider the following sample of monthly production volumes and total costs data for a manufacturing operation for the year 2018. Month Production Volume (units) Total Costs ($) January 2018 500 6,000 February 2018 350 4,000 March 2018 450 5,000 April 2018 550 5,400 May 2018 600 5,900 June 2018 400 4,000 July 2018 400 4,200 August 2018 350 3,900 September 2018 400 4,300 October 2018 600 6,000 November 2018 700 6,400 December 2018 750 7,000 20. Which of the following is NOT necessarily true about the interpretation of the value of b in the simple linear regression equation y = a + bx for this problem? 1. The monthly total costs will increase by $7.6437 for every one-unit increase in the production volume. Since b > 0, there is a direct relationship between production volume and total costs. III. Because b > 1, there is a very strong positive linear relationship between production volume and total costs. A. i and ii only B. ii only C. ili only D. ii and ii only

21. Which of the following statements are true about the dependent (or response) and independent (or predictor) variables for the simple linear model in this problem? 1. Production volume is dependent on total costs. 1I. The predictor and response variables are the production volume and total costs, respectively. III. The total costs can be projected using the simple linear regression equation if the production volume is known. A. i and ii only B. i and ili only C. ii and iii only D. i, ii, and ii 22. Calculate the (Pearson) correlation coefficient between production volume and total costs in this problem. A. 0.8391 B. 0.9571 C. 0.9160 D. 0.9783 23. Which of the following is the most suitable interpretation of the (Pearson) correlation coefficient between production volume and total costs in this problem? A. There is a perfect positive correlation between production volume and total costs. B. There is a very strong positive correlation between production volume and total costs. C. There is a strong positive correlation between production volume and total costs. D. There is a positive correlation between production volume and total costs. 24. The equation of the regression line is given by A. y = -116.01 + 0.12x B. y = 1321.32 - 7.64x C.y = 116.01 + 0.12x D. y = 7.64x + 1321.32 25. How much is the estimated total costs if the corresponding production volume for a particular month is 300 units? A. $274.80 B. $287.13 C. $2,293.11 D. $3,614.43
