QUESTIONS 18-27 DEAL WITH THE FOLLOWING SITUATION: The expected sales of a product in a

city are assumed to be affected by the per capita discretionary income and the population of the city. Per

capita discretionary income will be referred to as PCDI in all the questions. In Questions 1-10 examine only

the effect of per capita discretionary income on the mean sales. Thus the following model is hypothesized:

E(Y) = B0 + B1 X1 where

X1 = Per Capita Discretionary Income (in dollars)

A sample of 15 cities, along with their sales, per capita discretionary income, and the population of the city

(in thousands) is given in the attached printout. The 15 values and a printout follow:

19. When testing the null hypothesis that the slope equals to zero versus the alternative hypothesis that the

slope does not equal to zero, the rejection region would be: reject the Null if

PCDI?

A. the Chi-square distribution

B. the t distribution

C. the F distribution

D. a t with no interaction and an F with interaction

21. Given the p-value of the F-test is 0.0103, we can interpret this as

A. Given the null is true, there is a 1.03% chance of finding this value of the test statistic or something more

extreme.

B. The percent of sample variability of Y explained by the independent variable is 1.03%

C. There is a 98.97% probability that the null hypothesis is right.

D. There is a 98.97% probability that the null hypothesis is wrong.

E. The probability of a type I error is 0.0103.

22. Does the PCDI help predict the sales of the product?

A. Yes, because 2.998 > the table value

B. No, because .8560 is greater than alpha

C. Yes, because 8.986 < the table value

D. Yes, because of MSE = 2451.66959

instructor).

B. 40.87 probability that sales is linearly related to PCDI.

C. 40.87 percent of the sample variability of sales can be attributed to changes in PCDI.

D. 40.87 percent of the variability of PCDI can be attributed to a linear relationship between mean PCDI and

sales.

B. 3.140

change in the mean sales for each dollar increase in PCDI.

A. 0.054

B. 0.4087

C. -10.207

D. 2.998

E. 0.018

26. You know that most cities have small PCDI and only a few have large PCDI. Is this a violation of any

C. Yes, this would violate the linear relationship between the mean sales and PCDI.

D. No, because the variance of sales has nothing to do with the problem.
