Question

The general manager of a chain of pharmaceutical stores reported the results of a regression analysis, designed to predict the annual sales for all the stores in the chain (Y) – measured in millions of dollars. One independent variable used to predict annual sales of stores is the size of the store (X) – measured in thousands of square feet. Data for 14 pharmaceutical stores were used to fit a linear model. The results of the simple linear regression are provided below.

Y = 0.964 +
1.670X; S** _{YX}** =$0.9664
million; 2 – tailed p value = 0.00004 (for testing
ß

S** _{b1}**=0.157; X
= 2.9124; SSX=Σ( X

1. Which of the following is a correct conclusion?

a. There is insufficient evidence to draw a correct conclusion

b. We cannot reject the null hypothesis at a level of significance 0.05 and, therefore conclude that the size of the store is not a useful linear predictor for the annual sales of the store

c. We can reject the null hypothesis at a level of significance 0.05 and, therefore conclude that there is significant evidence to show that the size of a store is not a useful linear predictor for the annual sales of the store

d. We can reject the null hypothesis at a level of significance 0.05 and, therefore conclude that there is sufficient evidence to show that the size of a store is a useful linear predictor for the annual sales of the store.

2. Predict the average annual sales for pharmaceutical stores of 4000 sq. ft.

** a) **$7.6440
mill

**b)** $67.7640 mill

**c)** $668.9640 mill

**d)** $6680.9640 mill

3. Suppose the manager obtains a 95% confidence interval estimate for the population slope of annual sales of pharmaceutical stores and the square footage size of the stores of (1.328, 2.012). Which of the following will be a correct conclusion?

a. We can reject the null hypothesis at **α** =
0.10 and, therefore, conclude that there is sufficient evidence to
show that the size of pharmaceutical stores are a useful linear
predictor for the annual sales.

b. We can reject the null hypothesis at **α** =
0.05 and, therefore, conclude at this level of significance that
there is evidence to show that the size of pharmaceutical stores
are a useful linear predictor for the annual sales of the store

c. We cannot reject the null hypothesis at **α** =
0.05 and, therefore, conclude that there is sufficient evidence to
show that the size of pharmaceutical stores are a useful linear
predictor for the annual sales of the stores.

d. We can reject the null hypothesis at **α** =
0.01 and, therefore, conclude that there is sufficient evidence to
show that the size of pharmaceutical stores are a useful linear
predictor for the annual sales of the stores

4. Interpret the estimate for the standard error of the estimate in the model:

a. For every 1.0 thousand sq. foot increase in the size of the pharmaceutical store, we expect the annual sales to increase by 0.9664 million dollars.

b. About 95% of the observed annual sales will fall within 2 x 0.9664 million dollars of the least squares line (the line of regression).

c. About 95% of the observed annual sales fall within 0.9664 million dollars of the least squares line

d. About 95% of the observed annual sales fall within the predicted values

Answer #1

1) We can reject the null hypothesis at a level of significance 0.05 and, therefore conclude that there is sufficient evidence to show that the size of a store is a useful linear predictor for the annual sales of the store.

2) The predicted average annual sales for pharmaceutical stores of 4000 sq. ft.

= 0.964 + 4*1.670

= $7.6440 mill

3) We can reject the null hypothesis at **α** =
0.05 and, therefore, conclude at this level of significance that
there is evidence to show that the size of pharmaceutical stores
are a useful linear predictor for the annual sales of the store

4) About 95% of the observed annual sales will fall within 2 x 0.9664 million dollars of the least squares line (the line of regression).

A marketing consultant was hired to visit a random sample of
five sporting goods stores across the state of California. Each
store was part of a large franchise of sporting goods stores. The
consultant taught the managers of each store better ways to
advertise and display their goods. The net sales for 1 month before
and 1 month after the consultant's visit were recorded as follows
for each store (in thousands of dollars):

In the journal Mental Retardation, an article reported
the results of a peer tutoring program to help mildly mentally
retarded children learn to read. In the experiment, the mildly
retarded children were randomly divided into two groups: the
experimental group received peer tutoring along with regular
instruction, and the control group received regular instruction
with no peer tutoring. There were n1 =
n2 = 30 children in each group. The
Gates-MacGintie Reading Test was given to both groups before

In the journal Mental Retardation, an article reported
the results of a peer tutoring program to help mildly mentally

Based on information from the Federal Highway Administration web
site, the average annual miles driven per vehicle in the United
States is 13.5 thousand miles. Assume σ ≈ 650 miles. Suppose that a
random sample of 36 vehicles owned by residents of Chicago showed
that the average mileage driven last year was 13.2 thousand miles.
Would this indicate that the average miles driven per vehicle in
Chicago is different from (higher or lower than) the national
average? Use a 0.05...

The U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration, reported that 77% of all fatally injured
automobile drivers were intoxicated. A random sample of 53 records
of automobile driver fatalities in a certain county showed that 35
involved an intoxicated driver. Do these data indicate that the
population proportion of driver fatalities related to alcohol is
less than 77% in Kit Carson County? Use α = 0.05.
a) What is the level of significance?
State the null and alternate...

USA Today reported that about 47% of the general
consumer population in the United States is loyal to the automobile
manufacturer of their choice. Suppose Chevrolet did a study of a
random sample of 1004 Chevrolet owners and found that 482 said they
would buy another Chevrolet. Does this indicate that the population
proportion of consumers loyal to Chevrolet is more than 47%? Use
α = 0.01.
