T F 1. Correlation analysis is a group of statistical techniques used to measure the strength of the relationship (correlation) between two variables.
T F2. A t test is used to test the significance of the coefficient of correlation.
T F 3. One assumption underlying linear regression is that the Y values are statistically dependent. This means that in selecting a sample, the Y values chosen, for a particular X value, depend on the Y values for any other X value.
T F 4. One assumption underlying linear regression is that for each value of X there is a group of Y values that is normally distributed.
T F 5. Trying to predict weekly sales with a standard error of estimate of $1,955, we would conclude that 68 percent of the predictions would not be off more than $1,955, 95 percent would not be off by more $3,910, and 99.7 percent would not be off by more than $5,865.
T F 6. Explained variation equals total variation minus unexplained variation.
T F 7. In the ANOVA table for regression, the total degrees of freedom is the sum the regression and error degrees of freedom.
T F 8. In a regression ANOVA table, the standard error of the estimate can be computed as the square root of the error mean square.
