Question

A model with explanatory variable x and response variable y takes the form:

y-hat = a1 + a2x

where y-hat is the predicted value of the value of y

when the explanatory variable takes the value x

1. To fit the model by the criteria of the root-mean-squared-deviation, we seek values of a1 and a2 to make what as small as possible?

a. the sum of differences between predicted values y-hat and observed values y.

b. the sum of absolute differences between predicted value y-hat and observed values y.

c. the average squared differences between predicted values y-hat and observed values y.

d. the sum of horizontal distances between points and the line of the predicted values.

Answer #1

To fit the model by the criteria of the root-mean-squared-deviation, we seek values of a1 and a2 to make what as small as possible:-

**the average
squared differences between predicted values y-hat and observed
values y**.(C)

[ the **root-mean-square deviation (RMSD)** is a
frequently used measure of the differences between values predicted
by a model and the values observed. generally, a lower
RMSD is better than a higher RMSD.

RMSD is the square root of the average of squared errors and is denoted as:-

where, n = number of observation,

= predicted value of y from the model

y = observed value ]

explanatory variable x. The following table contains the

Consider a linear regression model where y represents
the response variable, x is a quantitative explanatory
variable, and d is a dummy variable. The model is
estimated as yˆy^ = 15.4 + 3.6x −
4.4d.
a. Interpret the dummy variable
coefficient.
Intercept shifts down by 4.4 units as d changes from 0
to 1.
Slope shifts down by 4.4 units as d changes from 0 to
1.
Intercept shifts up by 4.4 units as d changes from 0 to
1.

The predicted response value is which of these?
Select one:
a. The response value observed for a particular data
point
b. The response value that would be predicted for a given x
value, based on the model
c. The difference between (the response value observed for a
particular data point) and (the response value that would be
predicted for a given x value, based on the model)
d. The sum of (the response value observed for a particular
data point)...

1. The following data have been observed on the dependent
variable Y and on an explanatory variable X:
yi 22 38 16 39 55
xi 10 35 20 30 20
(a) Calculate the ordinary least squares (OLS) estimates of the
intercept and slope parameters.
(b) Calculate the sample variance of both variables (S²x and S²y)
and the sample correlation between X
and Y . Explain what the calculated value of the correlation
means.

We use the form y hat = a + bx for the least-squares line. In
some computer printouts, the least-squares equation is not given
directly. Instead, the value of the constant a is given, and the
coefficient b of the explanatory or predictor variable is
displayed. Sometimes a is referred to as the constant, and
sometimes as the intercept. Data from Climatology Report No. 77-3
of the Department of Atmospheric Science, Colorado State
University, showed the following relationship between elevation...

Question 2 options:
A key requirement for using correlation and regression models is
to collect this type of data.
With bivariate data, the result of MINIMIZING the sum of squared
distances between the observed and predicted values (residuals) for
a linear model.
This quantity is computed by subtracting the observed response
variable from the predicted response variable.
With bivariate data, when one variable increases a second
variable decrease implies this relationship.

True or False Questions
a. Suppose that (-0.47, -0.39) is a confidence interval for the
difference of proportions (p1 -
p2). This indicates that p1 is
greater than p2
b. If two variables are strongly correlated (r > 0.9 or r
< -0.9), we can say that the explanatory variable is causing the
response variable.
c. If two variables are negatively correlated this means that
when one increases the other tends to increase.
d. If p-value < ? then I...

In a survey, a statistician analyzed the relationship between
the Mothers-Heights (explanatory variable x) and the
Daughters-Heights (response y) by using the regression method. When
he drew the regression line, he found that at x1 = 0 the predicted
response is ˆy1 = 29.9, and at x2 = 1 the predicted response is ˆy2
= 30.43. Answer the following questions providing all the
details.
1. Find the intercept a and slope b of the regression line of
Daughters-Heights on Mothers-Heights....

Two simple (i.e, one x variable) linear regression models are
fit. Model A, using variable x1 only, has an
R2 of 0.23. Model B, using variable x2 only,
has an R2 of 0.57. What will the R2 value be
for Model C, which uses both x1 and x2?
Cannot be determined without knowing the correlation between
x1 and x2.
It will be some value less than 0.
It will equal 0.34
It will equal 0.80.
We cannot say without knowing...
