1.A real estate analyst has developed a multiple regression line, y = 60 + 0.068 x1 – 2.5 x2, to predict y = the market price of a home (in \$1,000s), using two independent variables, x1 = the total number of square feet of living space, and x2 = the age of the house in years. With this regression model, the predicted price of a 10-year old home with 2,500 square feet of living area is __________.

\$205.00

\$255,000.00

\$200,000.00

\$205,000.00

2.A cost accountant is developing a regression model to predict the total cost of producing a batch of printed circuit boards as a linear function of batch size (the number of boards produced in one lot or batch), production plant (Kingsland, and Yorktown), and production shift (day, and evening). In this model, "shift" is ______.

an independent variable

a constant

a response variable

a dependent variable

a quantitative variable

3.A market analyst is developing a regression model to predict monthly household expenditures on groceries as a function of family size, household income, and household neighborhood (urban, suburban, and rural). The response variable in this model is _____.

suburban

family size

household neighborhood

expenditures on groceries

household income

4.A market analyst is developing a regression model to predict monthly household expenditures on groceries as a function of family size, household income, and household neighborhood (urban, suburban, and rural). The "income" variable in this model is ____.

an indicator variable

an independent variable

a qualitative variable

a dependent variable

a response variable

5.The multiple regression formulas used to estimate the regression coefficients are designed to ________________.

minimize the sum of squares of error (SSE)

minimize the total sum of squares (SST)

minimize the mean error

maximize the p-value for the calculated F value

maximize the standard error of the estimate

1. The predicted price of a 10-year old home with 2,500 square feet of living area is y = 60 + 0.068*2500 – 2.5*10

= \$ 205 thousand =\$ 205000.

2. In this model, "shift" is an independent variable.

3.  The response variable in this model is expenditures on groceries.

4. The "income" variable in this model is an independent variable.

5.The multiple regression formulas used to estimate the regression coefficients are designed to

minimize the sum of squares of error (SSE).
