√ almost perfect negative linear correlation
a non-linear relationship

A graduate school wants to try to predict GPA based on GMAT score. A random sample
of 6 students was selected. The data was place into Excel. Partial regression output is
shown above.

-Given the attached file, is the regression statistically significant at the .05 level?

√ Yes
No
Not enough information to determine
Don't pick this one. Wanted three options.

-The coefficient of determination, r2, has which one of the following properties?
(Note: r2 means "r squared". Superscripts are not possible in BlackBoard.)

is always negative
applies to any relationship between x and y
is a ratio of unexplained variation to explained variation
has the same sign as the slope of the regression line
√ ranges from zero to one

-When testing H0: b0 = 01, against H1: b1 not equal to 0, failing to reject thenull
hypothesis means what?

the slope of the regression line is not zero


there is evidence of a relationship between x and y, but it is not linear
the relationship between x and y is an inverse one
√ there is not a linear relationship between x and y
there is a linear relationship between x and y

When there is no linear correlation between two variables, what will the value of r be?
Answer
1
√ 0
1
a very small negative number

-An assumption in linear regression is that the error terms are normally distributed with
mean zero and constant variance.

√ True
False

An r value of 0.21 indicates a very high level of linear correlation


Answer
True
√ False

-The coefficient of determination measures the proportion of the variation in the


dependent variable,Y, that is explained its linear relationship with the independent
variable X.

√ True
False
