As p value is .368 or 36.8 % That is, p value > alpha We conclude that evidences are not strong enough to reject the H0 .Therefore we can say that female respondents are not significantly more satisfied than the male respondents.

Question 10: Fit a regression model for the variables recommending the favorite fast-food restaurant and overall service rating.

a. Dependent Variable: Recommending the favorite fast-food restaurant

From the output, we can see: b0 = 3.567 b1 = 0.286 So the regression line of best fit will be represented by the following equation: Ῡ = 3.567 + 0.286x Where, b1 represents the slope of the line b0 represents the y-intercept
Fast-Food Restaurant Survey 43

The coefficient of b1 explains that as x increases by 1 unit, y will increase by 0.286 units. Testing the model: 1. Standard error of estimate The value of SE = 0.425 And for total of 31 responses average y = 4.70 On comparing standard error of estimate with average y, we see that SE is almost 9% of mean y, so we can say it is a comparatively small but not too good to rely totally on the model. 2. t-test It tells us, whether there exists any linear relation among the variables or not. And a linear relation would only exist in the case when b1 is not zero. H0: b1 = 0 H1: b1 ≠ 0 Level of significance = 5% The p-value obtained in the model is 0.018 As p-value < 0.05 We conclude that we have the strong evidences to reject the null hypothesis in favor of alternate hypothesis. And therefore, we say that there exists a linear relation among the variables. 3. Coefficient of determination – R2 This tells us about the strength of the relationship of the two variables and is used to estimate the goodness of fit of the estimated regression model. For the concerned model, R2 = 0.179 That means 17.9 % of the variability in recommendation is explained by overall service rating. Such a low level of R2 shows that the estimated regression model is a bad fit. 4. F-test This tells us about the validity of the model The p-value for the f-test is 0.018 As p-value < 0.05 We conclude that there are strong evidences to infer that the model is good. Conclusion: On the basis of above parameters, we conclude that the estimated regression model is a good fit and can be used in forecasting.

Coefficient of determination – R2 This tells us about the strength of the relationship of the two variables and is used to estimate the goodness of fit of the estimated regression model. For the concerned model, R2 = 0.085 That means 8.5 % of the variability in recommendation is explained by overall service rating. Such a low level of R2 shows that the estimated regression model is a bad fit. 4. F-test This tells us about the validity of the model The p-value for the f-test is 0.062 As p-value > 0.05 We conclude that there are not enough evidences to infer that the model is good.
