ANOVA

df SS

Regression 1 354.689

Residual 39 7035.262

Coefficients Standard Error Intercept 54.076 2.358

X 0.029 0.021

a. What has been the sample size for this problem? (1 mark)

b. Determine whether or not demand and unit price are related. Use a = 0.05. (2 marks)

Compute the coefficient of determination and fully interpret its meaning. Be very specific. c.

(2 marks)

Compute the coefficient of correlation and explain the relationship between supply and

d. unit price. (2 marks)

e. Predict the supply (in units) when the unit price is $50,000. (1 mark) Question 3 6 marks

Allied Corporation wants to increase the productivity of its line workers. Four different programs have been suggested to help increase productivity. Twenty employees, making up a sample, have been randomly assigned to one of the four programs and their output for a day's work has been recorded. You are given the results below (data set also provided in accompanying MS Excel file).

a. Construct an ANOVA table. (3 marks)

b. As the statistical consultant to Allied, what would you advise them? Use a .05 level of

significance. (3 marks)

Question 4 9 marks

A company has recorded data on the weekly sales for its product (y), the unit price of the competitor's product (x1), and advertising expenditures (x2). The data resulting from a random sample of 7 weeks follows. Use Excel's Regression Tool to answer the following questions (data set also provided in accompanying MS Excel file).

Week Price Advertising Sales

1 .33 5 20

2 .25 2 14

3 .44 7 22

4 .40 9 21

5 .35 4 16

6 .39 8 19

7 .29 9 15

a. What is the estimated regression equation? Show the regression output. (2 marks)

b. Determine whether the model is significant overall. Use a = 0.10. (2 marks)

c. Determine if competitor’s price and advertising is individually significantly related to

sales. Use a = 0.10. (2 marks)

Based on your answer to part (c), drop any insignificant independent variable(s) and d.

re-estimate the model. What is the new estimated regression equation? (2 marks)

e. Interpret the slope coefficient(s) of the model from part (d). (1 marks)
