Data were gathered from a simple random sample of cities. The variables are Violent Crime​ (crimes per​ 100,000 population), Police Officer Wage​ (mean \$/hr), and Graduation Rate​ (%). Use the accompanying regression table to answer the following questions consider the coefficient of Graduation Rate. Complete parts a through e.

Dependent variable​ is: Violent Crime

R squared=38.1 R squared ​(adjusted)=40.3 s=129.6 with 37 degrees of freedom

 Variable Coeff SE​ (Coeff) ​t-ratio ​P-value Intercept 1388.65 183 .9 7.55 < 0.0001 9.44 44 .192 2.25 0.0304 −16.51 2 .600 −6.35 < 0.0001

a) State the standard null and alternative hypotheses for the true coefficient of Graduation Rate.

​b) What is the​ t-statistic corresponding to this​ test?

The​ t-statistic is (________) ​(Type an integer or a​ decimal.)

​c) Why is the​ t-statistic negative?

A.The​ t-statistic is negative because R squared is less than​ 50%.

B.The​ t-statistic is negative because the coefficient has the smallest standard error.

C.The​ t-statistic is negative because the coefficient is negative.

D.The​ t-statistic is negative because R squared​ (adjusted) is less than​ 50%.

​d) What is the​ P-value corresponding to this​ t-statistic?

A.−0.617

B. 0.0304

C. 9.44

D.<0.0001

​e) Test the null hypothesis​ (at α=​0.05) and state your conclusion.

A.Reject H0. There is sufficient evidence that the coefficient is different from 0.

B.Fail to reject H0. There is insufficient evidence that the coefficient is different from 0.

C.Fail to reject H0. There is sufficient evidence that the coefficient is different from 0.

D.Reject H0. There is insufficient evidence that the coefficient is different from 0.
