  • True
  • False

Question 107

Question
In using the regression model for forecasting the next value (or an individual value) of y, the prediction interval will be
Answer
  • the same as the estimating interval
  • narrower than the estimating interval
  • wider than the estimating interval
  • wider or narrower, depending on the data

Question 108

Question
The coefficient of determination (R2) is equal to 0.64, and the linear regression equation which indicates an inverse relationship between x and y is equal to ŷ = 2 - .74x, then the correlation coefficient must necessarily be equal to:
Answer
  • -.80
  • +.64
  • -.74
  • either -.80 or +.80

Question 109

Question
In a simple linear regression and correlation problem, a correlation coefficient of .80 means that 64% of the variation in y can be explained by x.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 110

Question
When R2 = 1, then Se = Sy.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 111

Question
A correlation coefficient of –1.0 would imply that the standard error of the estimate Se would necessarily be equal to 0.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 112

Question
Standard error is measured in the units of the x variable.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 113

Question
The range of a regression coefficient is – 1 to + 1.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 114

Question
Standard deviation of height = 2.45 inches. Standard deviation of weight = 23 pounds. Correlation = .56 If we are predicting weight from height, the regression coefficient is 5.26.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 115

Question
If ŷ = 15 + 10x, then the estimated value of y when x = 5 is:
Answer
  • 25
  • 65
  • 10
  • 15
  • 55

Question 116

Question
When H0 is accepted in a regression model, we conclude:
Answer
  • A linear relationship exists between x and y.
  • The x variable is statistically significant.
  • The x variable is not statistically significant.
  • A linear relationship exists between x and y AND the x variable is statistically significant.

Question 117

Question
Seasonality can be incorporated into regression models with dummy variables.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 118

Question
For the linear equation ŷ = 50 – 2x where y is the number of items sold and x is the price of the product in $, which is true?
Answer
  • The equation represents an inverse relationship between y and x.
  • The equation represents a positive relationship between y and x because the constant term 50 is greater than 0.
  • The slope of the line is – 2 dollars per each item sold.
  • The slope of the line is +50 dollars per each item sold.

Question 119

Question
If a correlation exists between y and x, then necessarily either y causes x or x causes y.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 120

Question
The advantage of multiple regression over simple regression is that we can change more than one variable at a time.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 121

Question
If ŷ = 31 + 1.2x1 – 3.4x2 + 5x3, then the estimated value of y when x1 = – 6, x2 = 3, and x3 = 2 is:
Answer
  • 31.7
  • 25.4
  • 23.6
  • 38

Question 122

Question
The alternative hypothesis in a multiple regression problem is that no linear relationship exists between a given independent variable and y.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 123

Question
The correlation coefficient between college GPA and H.S. GPA is .70. The correlation coefficient between college GPA and H.S. rank is .60. Which of the following is true?
Answer
  • 70% of the variation in college GPA can be explained by H.S. GPA.
  • 60% of the variation in college GPA can be explained by H.S. GPA.
  • H.S. GPA is a better predictor of college GPA than H.S. rank.
  • There is an inverse relationship between H.S. GPA and College GPA.

Question 124

Question
Adding another variable to a regression equation will make R2
Answer
  • decrease
  • increase
  • stay the same or increase
  • stay the same or decrease
  • increase, decrease, or stay the same

Question 125

Question
The purpose of R2 adjusted is to discern the effect of adding a variable to a model.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 126

Question
Adding another variable to a regression equation will necessarily make R2 adjusted increase.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 127

Question
It is possible for a variable to be significant in multiple regression when that same variable is not significant in simple regression.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 128

Question
Stable environments are critical for effective time series analysis.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 129

Question
Which of the following is not a component of time series?
Answer
  • Seasonality
  • Cycle
  • Randomness
  • Trend
  • Contingency

Answer
  • 68.35
  • 16.35
  • 2.85
  • 49.15
  • 40
