Question

American Express Company has long believed that its cardholders tend to travel more extensively than others-both on business and for pleasure. As part of a comprehensive research effort undertaken by a New York marketing research firm on behalf of American Express, a study was conducted to determine the relationship between miles traveled (x) and charges made on the American Express card (y). Eight cardholders were randomly selected and their total charges recorded for a specified period. A questionnaire was then mailed to these five cardholders requesting information on the number of miles traveled during this time period. The data follow.

Step 1 of 4:

What is the standard deviation of the error terms? (Report to 2 decimal places.)

Step 2 of 4:

What fraction of the variation in credit card charges is explained by miles traveled? (Report as a decimal fraction to 2 decimal places.)

Step 3 of 4:

What is the predicted value of credit card charges (in thousands of dollars) if the cardholder traveled 2 thousand miles? (Report to 1 decimal place.)

Step 4 of 4:

Determine the 95% confidence interval for the average credit card charges, given that the cardholder traveled 2 thousand miles. (Report answer to 2 decimal places.)

The travel agency Paradise Retreats has developed a model to
predict the price per night of holiday apartment rentals in the
coast of Croatia:
?=550+11?1−5?2
?: price of the apartment per night (in kunas)
?1: area of the apartment (in square meters)
?2: distance to the beach (in km)
According to Paradise Retreats’ model:
How much more expensive (in kunas) will be the rental of a 60
square-meter apartment on the beachfront compared with a 60
square-meter apartment...
